Ashley Norwood Cooper’s large-scale imaginative oil paintings engender dialogue surrounding the history of male dominance in the art world while shedding light on the schizophrenic role of the artist-mother-wife-teacher.

Cooper applies thick paint by paintbrush, palette knife, or her own fingers, adding to the immediacy and idiosyncratic spirit of her work; she revels in the messiness of creation.

Through the heroic lens of the ordinary, Norwood Cooper creates expressive paintings that pulse with the idea that “nothing makes a mess like paint and life.”

“I paint to cope. Maybe if I had an easy time dealing with life, I would never have become an artist. There is so much uncertainty and there are so many people I worry about.”
