Jacob Cooley
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.

I am revelling in what to me is basic, authentic and profoundly essential to issues of my consciousness: the infallible truths and deep-rooted perpetuity of landscape.
