Frank Cook lives and works in Rugby. His images are diverse and inventively sustained by using a range of materials such as bleach, watercolour, oil colour, relief printing and silk screen printing in complex juxtaposed overlays.
Atmospheric qualities prevail through the use of visual elements where soft light and muted colour are dominant.
The drawings, paintings and prints produced are theme related having links with landscape, townscape, travel, seasonal weather changes at home and abroad, sport, and other images about people make connections through many of his works.
