"Laid" Bare" // Solo Show // April 2013

J.A.W. Cooper
April 5th-28th

J.A.W. Cooper was born in England and grew up in Africa, Sweden, Ireland, various other locations throughout Europe, and California. Cooper's love of drawing and curiosity toward the natural world evolved naturally as she traveled around the globe. Inspired by forms found in nature, curio cabinets, fashion photography, the grotesque, alien, and flawed, Cooper makes a living as a freelance illustrator, gallery, and sketch artist and currently lives and works in downtown Los Angeles, California.

J.A.W. Cooper's newest series, Laid Bare, explores vulnerability as both a source of strength and discomfort. Flaws are authentic and humanizing, and when we allow others to see our flaws, when we accept vulnerability as necessary, we open ourselves up to truly authentic experiences and relationships. This series is about the struggle to release anxiety and fear and an exploration of the constructive and destructive power of vulnerability.
