Ethan Cook with new bronzes at New Foundry, NY

Ethan Cook was born in Tyler, Texas in 1983 and is currently in New York.

“In the past two plus months, Cook has had sold-out solo shows in Europe including Rod Barton (London), Galerie Jeanrochdard at ARTISSIMA, a dual solo with Landon Metz at V1 Gallery (Copenhagen), and a group show at The Brand New Gallery (Milan). Next up and just in time for Armory Week, Cook debuts a solo show at American Contemporary followed by a group show at Luce Gallery in April (Turin), solo shows at Bill Brady KC in June and T293 (Rome). Oh, one more thing, if you’re interested in acquiring a work, there’s waiting list from here to there – take a number.

If I were interviewing the most fascinating young artists in 2014, I would ask Cook about the pivotal moment when he decided to make a 180 degree turnaround to a style stark in contrast from the previous year. Was it an intervention, boredom or a creative block that needed a new direction? Nonetheless, Cook is high on my radar for 2014 and I look forward to seeing his star shine. As for Cook never picking up a paintbrush again, the answer looms…but I wishfully hope not." ”
