ISSUE NO. 2 of BLEACHED BLEACHED introduces a selection of work by New York based painter Ethan Cook.
With pushes and pulls of color stains, creased absences, sporadic metallic piles and fades, process is pointing to process here. A texture of addition and subtraction shows how the canvas is something he’s working with rather than on—what kind of interactions occur and those that happen unexpectedly.
Entitled “Something in the Way,” the something is important to consider…in the way of where things may go and come back…in the way of a trance of color fantasies, star clusters, spiral galaxies, rock landscapes, reflection pools…in the way of illusion and in the way of thinking.

BLEACHED BLEACHED is a light catalog of images by an individual artist presented monthly on our website as a downloadable pdf. To bleach = to remove the color, to alter the fiber, to change what was the original.
