Dan Cook is a British painter, born in Cambridge and raised in Southeast England. He currently lives and works just outside St. Ives.
Dan's focus has fallen on a personal and immediate perception of the natural environment, which he captures through oil paint and pencil on wood panel.
His process involves decoding and recording an ever-changing theme; it could be the light, a surface, a place or an atmosphere which dictates the painting. In collecting personal responses to his environment, the need for a physical unique representation of these responses becomes essential, compelling and urgent.
