Nigel Cooke's large-scale paintings construct a dark and melancholic world, populated by artists and philosophers dwarfed by the moody voids of color surrounding them. Reminiscent of the murkiness of backdrops in a dream, the isolate fragility of Giacometti and the more romantic climes of Caspar David Friedrich, Cooke's paintings have invented a new idiom for the portrayal of the figure.
