LONDON ART FAIR 2019 - Eileen Cooper

New works on paper by Eileen Cooper occupy the hinterland between drawing and painting. Using layers of pigment in pastel, acrylic, watercolour and ink she creates body and intensity. Her strong drawing with fluid simplified lines and colourful compositions make her work immediately recognisable. An engagement with process and materials underpins Cooper's unique works on paper, each presents a physical sense of beauty, freedom.

The figure of a woman is central to Cooper's imagery, sometimes heroine, goddess of myth, mother and lover. Her pictures have often featured trees, which have an intense connection to her figures, stretching up into the air but deeply rooted in the ground. Cooper's new works concentrate on the gloriously complex question of human relationships.

Eileen Cooper is an elected Royal Academician (RA) and was Keeper of the RA from 2011 to 2017. In 2016 she was awarded an OBE for her services to arts. Selected Public Collections: The Arts Council UK, Royal Collections UK, The Royal Academy of Arts, The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, Yale University, USA.
