Eileen Cooper: Solo Exhibition
October 30 - November 21
The Fine Art Society is pleased to present Eileen Cooper’s first solo exhibition at the gallery Till the Morning Comes. The show will feature new paintings and a series of life study drawings inspired by the English National Ballet’s recent production of Giselle choreographed by Akram Khan.
Throughout her career, Eileen Cooper’s bold and dynamic paintings have presented a dream-like vision of the world. Her stylised images of women, animals, and couples are full of energy and movement and often show her subjects dancing, floating, or flying in incongruous backgrounds. She has an abiding interest in the eternal feminine, in ideas of love, sexuality, and human relationships.
When the idea arose for Cooper to collaborate with the English National Ballet to create a series of works based on Akram Khan’s Giselle, it seemed a natural fit with her own artistic vision. In 2016, Khan was commissioned to choreograph a new version of this well-known classical ballet for the 21st century. Giselle is a much-loved repertoire piece for all major ballet companies. The story is a tragic one, about love and betrayal, revenge and forgiveness and features a strong and ferocious female protagonist.
