DESCRIPTION

Mixed media work on paper 

Read Alison's recent studio visit. 

"I’ve always been attracted to drawing and marking in painting," explains Cooley.  "In my latest work, I’m creating a kind of written visual language that’s my own but is open to interpretation by the viewer. It is a “secret language” that I create in line, form and tone that I want people to read in their own way."

"I’ve been looking at artists who use molten glass on paper (pyrography) and at the same time realized I was making my own “ancient language.” I love the sound of the word “chirograph” which refers to the study of writing by hand (chiro-) and also to medieval contracts. My own chirographs are language markings that are a two-way contract with the viewer."
