We love Ashley Cook’s work. Her ability to create dreamscapes, that touch on themes of love, life, hope and survival, is effortless. Working with a mix of personal and found imagery, she expertly brings surreal, illusionist environments to life, injecting her scenes with exquisite colours and symbolism.
Add to that Ashley’s capacity to enhance the imagery with her titles – ‘The Centre Of The Flame’, ‘Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost’, ‘The Garden Inside’, ‘The Balancing Of Desires’…. They help to provide an opening narrative for her viewers, aiding in their interpretation of the visuals.
A professional artist and printmaker, Ashley’s work is held in numerous collections around the world (Scottish Arts Council, Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery, Galeria Otra Vez in Los Angeles to name a few). So make sure to check out her full collection here.
