Michelle Pearson Cooper
Michelle aims to capture the importance that the wild and domestic cats have in our lives, their magnificence and beauty, strength and wisdom as well as vulnerability, respect and emotional symbiotic dependance. The exhibition "Reigning Cats and Dogs" aims to put them on the pedestal they truly deserve.
MICHELLE PEARSON COOPER studied art on a rarely awarded Art Scholarship at Millfield and in Florence under Signorina Simi who lists Annigoni as one of her pupils. Michelle has held 17 solo exhibitions in London, Palm Beach, Marrakech and Dubai, and collectors of her work include HRH The King of Bahrain, Bruce Oldfield, Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, Mahdi Al Tajir and Tom Stoppard.
Inspired by primeval landscapes and their wild creatures, on travels to India, Africa, Oman and the UAE. Michelle has given substance to her ideas born in the silence of the desert and the solitude of the wilderness. She chooses subjects that are powerful and challenging but always her affinity with them is paramount. Her honest approach and distinctive draftsmanship is apparent in each cast bronze and faithfully executed drawing, achieving greater perception into their individual characteristics.
Michelle will have her first one man show at the gallery in October 2020.
