This thought-provoking retrospective on Eileen Cooper (b. 1953) spans the entire breadth of her career, from her early days as a singular figurative voice in British art and her exploration of ideas of feminism and femininity in painting to her current mature work, characterized by uninhibited colors bursting with energy, contained by her expressive use of line. Martin Gayford expands his ongoing investigation of Cooper s work, aided by extracts from recent interviews with the artist, while Sara Lee explores Cooper s graphic work.
