Jarryd Cooper is a Melbourne based artist. His practice utilises painting to investigate the state of images in contemporary image culture. He considers the way in which images are treated and behave; how they are located, valued, and re-appropriated. In his practice, Cooper examines how and why the idiom of painting suggests multiple meanings, employing form as an interlocutor between images and those that encounter them.
Cooper’s practice is based in painting but often includes video, photography and installation. He has recently completed Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours at RMIT University and was awarded the Leipzig Residency Award which concluded with a solo show at the Australian Embassy in Berlin.
