Paintings Exhibition by Henry Cook and Simon Greaves




 

 Henry Cook

Increasingly drawn towards still life and interiors, Henry’s work brings together a dynamic blend of movement, energy, colour and light to give a very contemporary edge to traditional subjects. 

Henry’s formal art education at Putney Art School and the Heatherly School of Fine Art in Chelsea, has been complemented by an insatiable appetite to practice, learn and improve. In recent years this commitment, helped by the establishment of his London studio, has seen him further develop his individual and very recognisable style. The art history inspiration for, and influences on, Henry’s work come from sources as diverse as the Dutch and Flemish masters, Chardin, the impressionists, Bonnard and more recent and contemporary British artists such as Matthew Smith and Peter Doig.

Simon Greaves

“In my paintings I try to create a striking yet calming atmosphere out of the simple objects in nature that are all around us, but that we often don’t take the time to stop and see. The huge variety of wonderful colours in the changing Seasons constantly inspires me.

My work is mostly visually stolen from an eclectic range of counties and countries, from France to the West Indies, Kent, Sussex, Norfolk, the Cotswolds, America and Russia. I try to convey a feeling and atmosphere of wellbeing. To transport the viewer, even if only for a few moments to recall happy memories or hopes of the future.

That brief moment of recognition, from sight, touch or smell to make you laugh, remember or even cry. For example, on the most grey of English days, Henri Le Sidaner’s ‘Dejeuner au Jardin’ can sweep us away to a long, lazy lunch in Provence.

And who wouldn’t want that?”
