John Paul Cook

'With an unrestrictive approach I create atmospheric, contemporary landscapes and seascapes. My work is a baring of the soul, with endless skies and moody tonal horizons. Derived from memory and contemplation I create a contemporary view of places I love to visit.

Working in both the Peak District and Cornwall, I spend time gathering visual references to use for my next project. Starting with a blank canvas my thoughts and memories are transferred through the medium of oil into a visual sensation of a time, a place, or a moment.'
