Biography

Ethan Fielding Cook is a New York–based artist best known for his minimalist paintings on hand-woven canvases, which he weaves himself with a four-harness floor loom. Cook’s works are characterized by their meditative, process-focused qualities and limited color palettes—creating a sense of elegance and purpose when shown together. More recently, Cook innovated on his prior work by weaving pre-dyed fabrics directly into the canvas, creating abstract compositions with thread itself and forgoing the need for paint entirely. Cook’s work draws on the legacy of Minimalist and Color Field artists including Mark Rothko and Josef Albers.
