Lia Cook (b. 1942) is a fiber artist who combines weaving, painting, photography and digital technology to create her work.
Cook’s work attempts to shatter restrictive theories about craft, art, science and technology. Her focus is on the history and meaning of textiles in all cultures and its impact on our humanity. Her latest project is about the brain – Lia takes notions of imaging, memory and emotion, measures the physical human response, and incorporates all this information into her weavings.
Her work has been exhibited at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and is in the collection of Philbrook Museum of Art, Racine Art Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design Museum, and Smithsonian American Art Museum.
