Born in North Yorkshire, England, Christopher Cook is a British artist who creates works with liquid graphite. He refers to his works simply as ‘graphites’, as they encompass elements of painting, drawing and photography. Cook’s methods allow him to explore the enigmatic within the everyday.

Developing techniques

Cook studied English Literature and Fine Art at the University of Exeter, before pursuing an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art. He developed his unique monochrome graphites after several research visits to India encouraged him to rethink his approach in favour of a more intimate, less perspectival aesthetic.

Working with graphite

Cook uses graphite powder suspended in resin and oil, and its liquid delicacy is mirrored in the imagery he creates. He works on aluminium and coated paper, then applies the graphite suspension, usually as a single layer, which can be selectively removed and repainted. Cook acknowledges a connection between the graphite medium and early photography due to the quality of the edges, the monochrome tonality, and the physicality of the process, which can appear to mimic developing in a darkroom.

International acclaim

Cook has exhibited extensively worldwide, with solo exhibitions in the UK, the US, Germany, China and Japan. Cook is currently Associate Professor in Painting at Plymouth University, and has also taught at the Ruskin School, University of Oxford, and at CalState University Long Beach, USA. His work is in the British Museum and numerous major museums in the USA, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
