Ben Cook British, b. 1967
My work is an exploration of the local landscape using materials from surfing. After all, surfing is everywhere in Cornwall, especially in West Penwith.
Ben Cook’s multi-media art practice is inspired by the social and environmental landscape of Cornwall. Taking influence from the tradition of landscape art in the South West, this work attempts to offer a fresh perspective through the eyes of a surfer, by referencing beach culture and the material aesthetics associated with a contemporary surfing lifestyle.
Ben Cook was brought up mainly in Yorkshire. He took a B.A in Fine Art at the University of Sunderland, spent many years livig in Manchester and later Cornwall, where he continues to live and work.
