Jeannine Cook & Jeffrey Lewis
“Shimmering Metal: Drawings in Silver and Gold”

Metalpoint, mark-making in silver, gold, copper, platinum and other metals on a prepared smooth surface, allows a diversity of artistic expression totally in keeping with today. In its lustrous restraint, metalpoint is the perfect counterpoint to the technicolored urgency of our world.

Jeannine Cook and Jeffrey Lewis are artists who have long used metalpoint, and especially silverpoint, as a vehicle to express the more reflective, quieter aspects of their art.  Both also paint, but these shimmering monochromatic drawings allow an examination of their worlds in a different way. Both artists are aware of the shimmering, quiet and healing voice that metalpoint drawings can project. Each artist believes that in today’s tumultuous, violent and complex world, this medium can offer viewers reminders of order, beauty and centering calm.
