Currently online only, the Fraser Gallery in St Andrews has a series of vibrant floral studies by David Mackie Cook. A graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone School of Art and Design in Dundee, where he trained under Alberto Morrocco and David McClure, Cook (b. 1957) is considered an ‘art brut’ painter. He works from a restored fisherman’s cottage on the North Sea coast in Aberdeenshire, where the environment has imbued his work with a sense of belonging as he depicts the changing seasons, from the daffodils of spring to the raw, bleak drama of winter.
