His style has been described as ‘figurative expressionist’ with artistic influences ranging from Max Beckmann to Edward Hopper. The travels took in Central and South America and Central Europe resulting in Cook’s idea of “a fusion of past and present elements, consisting in some part of biblical/mythical references and contemporary syndromes.” The compassion towards other cultures is strongly apparent in his work.
