Footfall Art is delighted to present Gabrielle Cooper.
作画(Hua), 3. Digital C-type print. 2012.
For Footfall Art, Gabrielle presents photography series 作画’ (Hua), Chinese for ‘‘‘painting’’ or ‘‘to draw’’. This work is deeply inspired by her Grandfather, Arthur Cooper, and his work as a renowned translator of Chinese poetry in the 1970’’s.
Currently taking rural Scotland as her setting, 作画’ (Hua) captures landscape through the lens in ways that mimic a sense of sublime expressed in China’’s ancient painting style. Specifically interested in the ambiguity of such works, she denies a sense of place, and uses photographic techniques to create an atmosphere reminiscent of surreal and romantic imagery.
Gabrielle Cooper was born 1987 in Kingston, Jamaica. Based in London, she graduated in 2010 from Camberwell College of Arts with a Fine Art Photography degree, and is the founder of creative support network, Leap Into the Void - Arts.
