Fine art paintings with a southern flavor. Self-taught artist Chris Cook works include: landscape paintings, abstract paintings, religious & spiritual paintings and more.

Chris Cook is an American artist, born in Georgia. He is considered a Southern Artist... an Outsider Artist because of being self-taught - He is also recognized as a Southern Expressionist.

Southern Expressionism (from the online encyclopedia - Wikipedia.com) "New American Southern expressionism is the movement begun in the late 20th century by a group of painters from the American southeast."

Paintings of this style are typically imbued with broad strokes and bold colors, rough surfaces and ambiguous figures. All subject matter tends to be subjective and figurative or non-figurative and inspired by the personal experience of the artist. The common thread is observation and expression as formed by the parochial focus of growing up in the 20th century American South". (see pdf of article here)

Chris paints in a wide variety of styles, media and subject matters but retains a feeling of the "Deep South" - working in his studio about 1 hour from Atlanta, GA. His work is untamed and boundary free. Unlike most artists, he cannot be pinned down into an overall style, subject matter or even genre. He continually searches for new expression as you will see in the wide variety of work represented here.

He works from a kin knowledge of art history and has recreated and reinterpreted works of artists like Avery, Dove, Hartley, Hooper, Frankenthaler, Motherwell, Grant, Matisse, O'Keeffe, Picasso and Wyeth. Subjects from southern landscapes, figurative, and southern subjects, to mythological, religious & biblical stories. Producing work primarily in these medias: Acrylic Paintings, Oil Paintings, Watercolor Paintings, Gouache Paintings, Signed Block Prints and Signed, Limited Edition Prints.

An artist can't help but reflect the world from their world view which is made up of the environment in which they work, their experiences, personality, influences in art, and education".

I want to personally invite you to review samples from many years of my work, enjoy!
