Andrea Cook is a sculptor based in Phoenix, Arizona who creates wall sculptures that resemble tightly bundled roses and are inspired by the elegance and loveliness of the flower. She creates each rose from hand dyed, painted, or pure fabrics made from canvas, burlap, muslin, and cotton blends. To create her work, she rips the fabric into ribbons and dips them in a high-quality, light-fast archival glue. She then sculpts each strip into a rose form and mounts them on a gallery wrapped canvas or deep cradled birch panel. The sculptures are remarkably tactile; “everyone wants to touch the pieces,” says Andrea. And, while they appear to be soft, the roses are hard and durable.

About The Artist
My goal with the collection is to create an illusion that connects with the viewer. I love for my art to be beautiful, colorful, and textural working with pattern and repetition to create unity. I try to share my inner light, passion, and imagination in each artwork.
The Garden of Roses series is composed of hand dyed, painted, or pure fabrics made from canvas, burlap, muslin, and cotton blends. The fabric is ripped into strips and dipped into a high quality archival glue. Then, each strip is formed into rose designs ranging in shape, size, and color. Every unique design is textural and sculptural.
