"Love Song" :: Stephen Cook

Now up at the OneWay Gallery in Providence is a piece by RI artist Stephen Cook entitled "Love Song". The piece was created utilizing pure mixed pigment to give it a full range of color values and tones. Cook notes that "it is a study of composition using different tones and sweeping, aggressive markings to make up the composition. It has the look and feel like Rothko and Pollock got together and collaborated on it". If you look closely, the name "Love Song" rings true, with the details almost appearing as if one is peering into the tissue and muscle of the human heart. Come see this piece as well as the others in "Love & Sex & Hate & Heartbreak" until the end of February.
