Shelley Cook - Internationally exhibited installation/performance artist, Cook will entrance the senses, body and spirit, metaphorically exploring fire in the heart. She works from the perspective that, like the subconscious that communicates with the conscious person through remembered dreams, the artist/individual can speak to society by giving form to his or her inner experience. In this way, art, in its many forms, becomes that subconscious voice to society, revealing truth within its images. (
