hidell brooks is loving all the new art arriving in the gallery. the holidays are just around the corner and we are in full swing. jacob cooley sent us four new marsh paintings that have us yearning for a trip to the coast. jacob was born in sydney, australia and received his mfa in painting from unc-chapel hill. the carolina coast is one of his obsessions!
these paintings are informed by harmonious and hallowed places, landscapes about contemplation and the spirit but also about the transient, ephemeral characteristics of light and darkness and ultimately of life. this work attempts to capture and hold the instant when the orange of the sun is about to completely scatter into the diffused light of dusk or the thunderclouds move to entirely obscure the horizon. moments.
all information including sizing and pricing of the new paintings by jacob cooley are on our website under jacob's artist page. please call the gallery if you have any further questions.
