Michael Cook

Festival: 2016

The imagery in my work is an imaginative distillation of memories and sensations of the rural landscape of my childhood in Derbyshire. This links with many themes in British Neo-Romanticism; wandering figures on long journeys, aspects of nature as metaphors for human joy and sorrow, animal and human figures expressive of mystery and spiritual longing. More recently I have produced individual pieces and whole series which consciously seek to engage with overtly theological narratives, texts and themes, though usually in oblique or ambiguous ways.
