Celia Cook graduated from the Royal College of Art, London, with an MA in Painting in 1989 following a first class degree, BA Hons in Fine Art Painting, from Ravensbourne College of Art and Design. Visiting Fellow in Painting, Winchester School of Art (University of Southampton) 1989-90. Winner of the presitigious 2020 Pollock-Krasner Foundation award.
Now living and working in Bath, UK, her work has been exhibited alongside the likes of Howard Hodgkin, Gillian Ayres and Vanessa Jackson, as well as in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
By honing in on the fundamental elements of volume, mass, and movement, Cook seeks to create dynamic relationships in continual flux, where each form engages with another as well as the canvas edge, creating what she describes as a kind of “visual gymnastics”.
