Graham Cooke and Tim Southall: Etchings and Aquatints
The White Room Gallery has a history of showcasing outstanding printmakers and the forthcoming exhibition of contemporary artists Graham Cooke and Tim Southall promises to follow firmly in this tradition.
Graham Cooke trained in both Fine Art and 3-D Design. He initially worked as a designer in television and theatre before embarking on his career as an artist specialising in painting and printmaking. Cooke's work is often quirky and has an almost magical quality. He covers a broad spectrum of subject matter from architecture to landscapes and also illusory forms. His images all conspire to play with perspective and dimension by distorting and re-evaluating the whole notion of space and scale on paper or canvas.
Tim Southall was born in Staffordshire; he studied Printmaking at The Royal College of Art and has since travelled and exhibited widely. He currently spends his time working between London, Birmingham and at his home in Spain. Southall is a passionate printmaker who constantly finds inspiration in the world. With subject matter ranging from landscape and architecture to historical events and characters, his delicate etchings instantly engage the viewer's eye with emotive, dramatic and often humorous imagery.
This exhibition is an opportunity to view a wide variety of works by these accomplished artists. Both have produced new limited edition etchings of Bath exclusively for the exhibition.
