Description

Born in Portsmouth, England in 1952, Rosemary Cook worked for many years as a professional conservator and restorer of the decorative arts. Since moving to Suffolk in 1992, she has employed the skills used in restoration to enhance her sculpture of animals and the human figure, upon which she now concentrates full-time.
Her sculpture of animals represents a response to individual character; the essence of her work is to capture the immediate spark of liveliness in her subject, portraying their true spirit in a style that is impressionistic and unsentimental. On the other hand, her human subjects are more metaphysical in inspiration, expressing a mood, memory, experience or atmosphere that can strike a strong chord.
Her works are cast from the original clay either in bronze, using the traditional lost wax process, or in a variety of metals (iron, aluminium or bronze) in conjunction with resin. The latter process lends an individual character to each piece.
