Eileen Cooper: Between the Lines

This long-overdue publication on Eileen Cooper RA spans the entire breadth of her career, from her early days as a singular figurative voice in British art, and her exploration of ideas of feminism and femininity in painting, to her current mature work, characterised by uninhibited colours bursting with energy, contained by her expressive use of line. This comprehensive book places the artist in the context of British art over the last three decades. In a substantial and wide-ranging essay, Martin Gayford resumes his ongoing investigation of Cooper’s work, aided by extracts from a recent series of interviews with the artist.

Product story

Produced to accompany her exhibition Hide and Seek at the Royal Academy this monograph celebrating Cooper’s career, presents drawings spanning almost 40 years. Cooper creates work that possesses a strongly poetic and distinctive vision, and the artist has been described as a ‘magical realist’. An accomplished painter and printmaker, Cooper’s practice has always been underpinned by drawing. This remarkable body of work illustrates how her distinctive imagery has developed through making drawings that explore such subjects as sexuality, birth, family, fecundity and creativity.
