Working with a mixture of found imagery and her own autographic and photographic images, Ashley Cook has developed an eclectic library of iconography which is reused and developed throughout her work. Her prints are narrative, focusing on the human form and often have a dreamlike or nocturnal quality. This is a ten colour screenprint made using both photo mechanical and cut paper stencils. The title and imagery refer to the artist’s recent remission and positive prognosis from bone cancer following a period of successful hormone treatment.
Ashley has worked with Glasgow Print Studio since 1991 and has had six solo exhibitions in the Gallery during that time. She has also taught evening classes, worked in the Gallery and made a number of screenprint publications.
