LightScapes – Calm After the Storm
25 June – 30 August 2021
A new major solo exhibition by Daniel Cooper
 
As we all come to the end of a difficult and anxious time for everyone, hope begins to emerge like a ray of light through cloud. Since the beginning of the pandemic, like many, Cooper has dedicated most of his time with his family and working from home online. Shortly after the start of the first lockdown, Cooper created one of the first online exclusive solo exhibitions by an artist working in Cumbria. Tilted ‘Wandering Cloud’ – the physical show was originally destined to be hung at The Ruskin Museum during the Spring of 2020. Shown on a dedicated page on his website, the online version of this show was a great success for Cooper.

 

As lockdowns eased and travel restrictions relaxed, Cooper’s ventures out in The Lake District remained minimal, yet he was keen to create a narrative that is emotionally reflective and quietly contemplative after a period of lifestyle changes and challenges.‘LightScapes – Calm After the Storm’, is the latest solo exhibition by Daniel Cooper, and is hosted by The Ruskin Museum in Coniston, Cumbria. Bringing together new, original paintings and drawings, Cooper reflects on memories of past visits to Coniston and The Lakes. ‘Landscapes’, for the most part, sees a large collection of The Peaks alongside studies of the moon and evenings in The Lake District. The Peaks have almost become Cooper’s signature series, a minimal representation of the summit of a fell in charcoal. They appear out of the white cloud and each are isolated in solitude. Cooper’s moon studies have also become a long-time fascination by the artist, and these include a series of evening and night time paintings, creating an exhibition that represents the spectacle of the Lakes in the later hours of day.
“After running my last solo exhibition at Brantwood, concurrently and at the same venue as a special retrospective of the works by JMW Turner, 2019 was quite an intense year! 2020 and 2021 has naturally driven me to reflect on my practice and process, and my response this year I feel shows this. ‘Lightscapes’ is a calm visual experience after the metaphorical storm of the past year.”
 
During 2020, Daniel continued to work with his representative galleries. Online has become an essential workplace for Cooper too, as well as a solo exhibition, he has participated in another online-exclusive show hosted by lakedistrictart.co.uk. In collaboration with his framer, Cooper also created a month-long window display show for passers-by on Ulverston’s high street. Spring 2021 began with Cooper’s new website and social media presence, containing a comprehensive portfolio of original works and a brand-new collection of limited-edition prints. In 2021, Cooper was awarded with recognition of special performance in business innovation during the COVID-19 crisis. The award was made and presented by the High Sheriff of Cumbria, Julie Barton.
‘LightScapes – Calm After the Storm’ by Daniel Cooper is hosted by The Ruskin Museum and begins with its preview on Friday 25th June 2021 at 12noon until 3pm. Refreshments will be served during the preview and there will be an opportunity to meet and speak with the artist. Throughout the exhibition, there will be a collection of limited edition prints by Daniel Cooper available for sale at The Ruskin Museum shop.
The exhibition runs until 30 August 2021, normal opening hours are 10am – 4:30pm.
