Evie Cooper’s work comes from the process of walking and exploring the Ayrshire countryside to encourage thought, using photography and drawing as her main means of recording these journeys. Later on she think about her experiences, and condenses them into her studio work. Thus begins the process of abstraction, taking from walks and breaking down the experiences to push through the process of Etching, Screen Print and sculpture. Each material process serves to articulate a journey through the landscape.
Cooper has received the Glasgow Print Studio Prize 2015. She aims to continue walking and recording her experiences through the printmaking process. She feels she has much more to explore with the rich and diverse media of Etching, Screen Printing and Lithography.
The Glasgow School of Art has provided Cooper with utter freedom, crippling self doubt and at times glimpses of true happiness.
