William Delafield Cook. A Survey
William Delafield Cook. A Survey is the first survey exhibition of this significant Australian artist in over two decades.
Since the late 1970s Delafield Cook has worked almost exclusively with the Australian landscape – remarkably, from his studio in London. His paintings are characterised by a deadpan photo realism, yet they transcend the real altogether to speak of phenomena beyond our perception. Taken as a whole, his paintings elevate our understanding and appreciation of the Australian landscape to a new level.
This timely survey unites works from over a thirty year period, to provide a compelling document on the work of one of Australia’s most acclaimed and accomplished artists.
