"You have to find new perversions." - Nigel Cooke.

Nigel Cooke’s paintings depict carnivalesque figures set within harsh landscapes that are littered with urban decay.

Reminiscent of the murkiness of backdrops in a dream, the isolate fragility of Giacometti and the more romantic climes of Caspar David Friedrich, Cooke's paintings have invented a new idiom for the portrayal of the figure.
