Original Mixed Media Abstract Painting
by Eis Cooke

“Life is a journey with almost limitless detours.” Ken Poirot

Size: 12x12x3/4 inches
Support: Stretched canvas. Sides painted pale gray. Ready to hang.
Media: Mixed watermedia

Series: Detours

This is a new series of work that explores the metaphor of detours. I have often seen my artistic process as a journey—I start out with an intention or map, even if the intention is to explore—but along the way there are forks in the path—which way to go—and I just have to pick a road to see where it will take me. There is the chance of getting lost, but it’s a risk I take in the hope of being found again. Sometimes the map is the territory.

Artist Statement
The best advice I've come across about creating is "To create what you want to look at..." I love to look at work that is ambiguous and suggestive; work that leaves room for the imagination of the viewer. Thus, I aspire to create a spirited body of work I define as "otherly". My art is ever evolving based upon recent experiments, research, discoveries and inspirations.
Thank you for taking the time to look!
