Allison B. Cooke's paintings celebrate the interconnections of past and present, imagined and tangible, that which is lost and what remains. She is drawn to the physicality and evidence of the traces of time. The coalescence of weathered surfaces created through shifting atmospheric conditions and human touch are especially fascinating to her. Built-up patina of evocative color and gestural mark making, whether random or intentional, carry poetic resonance.
