Jordan Cook grew up in Harlow New Town, just outside of London. He graduated with a BA Hons in Illustration at Norwich University of The Arts in 2016. His recent works draw the viewer into sunken urbanscapes of small-town living. Fleeting, sincere and intimate, Cook’s charcoal drawings use everyday backdrops of shopping centres and street corners as stage sets for loosely connected narratives to play out. The works deal with themes of home, memory and masculinity, interplaying the viewer as either voyeur or participant.
