      Monica Cook is an american artist born in Georgia. In her work, from the oil paintings to the ones on paper, the subject is the human being: the bodies, of women in most cases, create tangled weaves, mixing with food, tentacles, fishes, fruits, giving life to images between horror and eroticism.

      Monica Cook paints beautiful and disturbing portraits of women. In her latest exhibition, Seeded and Soiled, Cook’s nude women engage with gorgeously rendered erotic food in scenes that elicit a range of emotion in the viewer from mesmerized hilarity to horror. The Georgia-born artist graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 1996 and now lives and works in New York.

      Monica Cook paints beautiful and disturbing portraits of women. Her figures are brilliantly painted, with breathtaking skill; Cook excels in rendering the subtleties of the flesh and details of light, tone and surface. Painted with an eerie intensity, Cook's figures compel the viewer to study them, often surreptitiously, as there is a strong sense of invading an extremely private moment.

We look, albeit sideways, with fascination at the beauty, humanity and complexity of these portraits.
