  ART REVIEWS  
  The language of life interpreted... by Michael Bolger

Jenik Cook, a California resident who has amassed a most impressive resume with shows spreading out from Scotland to New York, and many right here in the Southland. Cook's work has often been compared to the great modernists of the past, Kandinsky and Motherwell. While perhaps a compliment, this also seems a disservice to her striking talent

Cook possesses something more than a painter following in the footsteps of others before. There is a supreme depth to her work that captures a newer sense of Modernism, something that is sadly missing from the current art scene. if any comparison is to be made, it should be to other greats like that of jackson Pollack, illustrated beautifully in her"Pure Energy #5" The work, like Pollack's, is a multiplex of colors in droplets and splashes, something that might appear frantic, but upon closer inspection reveals a bold, controlled style.

Cook's abstract portraits, very simular to another great, Pablo Picasso, are a testament to a natural gift of balancing Cubism and free form, perfectly captured in her "Inseparable #9" piece. Her shapes and lines infuse her paintings with a richly exotic symbolism of style. There is purpose and psychology to her work, conveying a sense of confidence from a broad spectrum of experiance.

Cook's distinction as a modern painter is in her grace and amplitude in creating works that are engaging and powerful: Thay make more than a mark - they make a statement generating alluring and fascinating canvases. This is more than apparent in her dramatic "Untitled #38" Calder himself would have been most proud.
