Royal Academy Exhibition

Hide and Seek

Drawings by Eileen Cooper RA

29 May — 23 August 2015

Eileen Cooper RA 'Hide and Seek' Royal Academy ADThis summer the RA celebrates the art of Eileen Cooper RA with an exhibition of drawings spanning almost 40 years of her career.

This exhibition, which coincides with the publication of a monograph celebrating Cooper’s career, presents drawings spanning almost 40 years. Cooper creates work that possesses a strongly poetic and distinctive vision, and the artist has been described as a ‘magical realist’. An accomplished painter and printmaker, Cooper’s practice has always been underpinned by drawing. This remarkable body of work illustrates how her distinctive imagery has developed through making drawings that explore such subjects as sexuality, birth, family, fecundity and creativity. We are delighted to display, as part of the exhibition, the artist’s gift to the Royal Academy Collections of ten previously unseen mixed-media drawings. These feature Cooper’s iconic female figures, and are multi-layered and complex in form.
