ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Ethan Cook creates hand woven "paintings." Sourcing commercially available dyed cotton, Cook weaves lengths of fabric using a large-scale loom. He then stretches each sewn swatch taut over a wood support, in the manner of a canvas being prepared for painting. At first glance, his works evoke a certain rigidity and perfection often associated with Minimalist painting, however upon closer inspection, slight pulls in the weave and deviations in stitching become apparent. Canvas-itself becomes the entirety of Cook’s composition, which he sees as his way of grappling with abstraction, scale, color and logic.

Ethan Cook (b. 1983, Texas; lives and works in New York, NY) has been the subject of solo exhibitions worldwide at institutions such as Andersen’s Contemporary, Copenhagen; Noire Chapel, San Sebastiano; T293, Rome; Galerie Philipp Zollinger, Zurich; Gana Art, Seoul; Anat Ebgi Gallery, Los Angeles; Sunday-S Gallery, Los Angeles; Bill Brady KC, Kansas City; Galerie Jeanroch Dard, Paris and Rod Barton, London.
