Warren Cooke’s recent practice has changed in it’s viewpoint - from working on land and looking out to the water, to working from the water looking back towards land. The preparatory drawings and documentation take place from a small boat.
Historical and cultural overlays of exploration by sea, immigration, colonisation, fishing and recreation are inherent from this point of view.
The shift in perspective also perpetuates an ongoing fascination with and documentation of a threshold - the dynamic space where land and sea intersect. The work is informed by a resonant connection to nature and its shaping forces.
