Ethan Cook’s Dyed Canvas Paintings

Ethan Cook lives and works in New York. He utilizes dye and pigment to create large abstractions that are both earthly and galactic. The press release from a May 2012 exhibition at Ed. Varie in NY states that “Cook’s current body of work is a continuation of his interest in representing time and space through the exploration of traditional craft and process. Through an additive and reductive process of dyeing, bleaching, boiling, painting, folding and staining, the materials Cook employs become a part of the canvas’ weave. The canvases are worked, dried and reworked again and again to completion, resulting in an indexical manifestation of it’s own history.”
