Heather Cook

Heather Cook is another artist who makes a lot from simple means. In a recent piece in Modern Painters she has been compared with both Blinky Palermo and Sergej Jensen. In the LA Weekly, Christopher Miles wrote that “Cook’s paintinglike objects, made by cutting, folding, bleaching and then pinning up large swaths of fabric, seem as if recently unpacked from a time capsule left behind by artists variously labeled Nouveau Realiste, Arte Povera and Arte Concrete, but they also suggest an aesthetic sensitivity and stylistic smarts that could only have been formed from a distanced, postmortem study of feminist practice, as well as both hippie and punk cultures.”  More information here.
