One of Britain’s most distinctive abstract painters known for his unbroken allegiance to spray-painting died on Monday 13 July, aged 91.
From the beginning of his career, he championed the technique of spray-painting, a working method with few notable adherents, and established this way of working as a legitimate and versatile mode of expression in a fine art context.
Barrie Cook was a man of great integrity and creative energy, dedicated to his work and whose abundant love for his wife, Mary, was ever-present.
Mary also passed away Wednesday 15 July. As many of you will know, Barrie and Mary Cook will be greatly missed by everyone at Lemon Street Gallery.
