Beryl Cook

13 July 2007 - 2 September 2007

British artist Beryl Cook is self-taught and is celebrated for her paintings of people going about their daily activities.

Her work pictures familiar social situations such as girls on a hen night, in a disco or shopping; men in the pub, at a strip club or at the market. In her paintings Cook captures moments of social history, portrayed with a playful streak of naughtiness. This exhibition will be the largest survey of Cook’s work to date.
