Julian Cooper

Julian Cooper comes from Grasmere in Cumbria and is part of a family of artists in their own right. His father was William Heaton Cooper who, like his father Alfred was a great painter of Lakeland landscapes. Julians mother, Ophelia Gordon Bell was a sculptor. I was lucky enough to receive a William Heaton Cooper painting (print) as a gift in my twenty's.

 

What strikes me about the more recent work of Julian Cooper is that his paintings are a close up, a selected area of the rock or the terrain. There is no sky or foreground. This takes the observer into a close up of the painted landscape offering a more meaningful, deeper connection with the earth.

Connecting this to my own work; I am inspired by rock and it's formation over the years through weathering and erosion. Seeing Julian Coopers vast paintings close up and in such detail is wonderful.
