In these paintings Cooper has arrived at the very surface of the rock itself. They are almost entirely without air and explore the clear angles and geometric architecture of rock, rock as a substance formed and transformed over time into massive mountains that the forces of nature have taken millennia to reveal in the Lakeland outcrops as well as by brutal industrial intervention in the stone and mineral workings.
