"Simply stated Cook's paintings are exciting and revealing. He displays masterful skills that run parallel to those Asian artists who study their subjects for years and, that upon the moment of realization, execute their subject with a series of swift strokes. Cook's brush, like theirs, is an extension of his very being and both reveal the essence of subject and self, through a series of brilliant gestures."
