Dollface, Lia Cook at Donna Seager Gallery


We are delighted to have available the works of Lia Cook. Lia's extraordinary textile works are valued among collectors and Museums as the most exciting in her genre. Lia's newest works include Dollface. When woven into this large scale, a kind of alchemy takes place in which the image comes to life, innocent but somehow menacing or even accusing in a way that ceaselessly fascinating.

Lia Cook is currently Professor of Art at California College of Arts and Crafts and Chair of the Textile Department. She works in a variety of media; usually combining weaving and painting, photography and digital technology. Her recent work explores the sensuality of fabric and the human response of touch. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally for over 25 years, including a retrospective organized by the French government in 1983 and a traveling survey exhibition organized by the Oakland Museum and exhibited at the Renwick, Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC. She has received several National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships. She has received a Distinguished Faculty Award and Exhibition from CCAC and a Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of California, Berkeley. Her works are in the permanent collection of the MOMA NY, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Smithsonian Museum, Washington DC, National Collection, France, De Young Museum, San Francisco, Oakland Museum, Musee Bellerieve, Switzerland among others..
