John Potoschnick Interviews John Cook

July 26, 2015 2:51 PM | Tina Bohlman (Administrator)

NOTE:  The following is an in-depth "conversation" between two of OPS'  top signature members, John Pototschnick and John Cook.......read on; you're really going to enjoy this!!


"I’ve been a fan of John Cook’s work since the 1970′s when we were both working as freelance illustrators in Dallas. He excelled then and he excels now, as a fine artist; may I say, “fine, fine artist?”

What makes Cook’s work so incredibly appealing to me is that it comes across as being created by one who is absolutely fearless. He does things with a brush and palette knife that I can only achieve in my dreams. What I need to define and explain, he is able to suggest with just a few strokes of the brush. His work is powerful and emotionally charged. Fellow artists love his work for they recognize his amazing talent and his ability to apply paint in such an attractive manner.

His work is just exciting and inspiring when seen firsthand. I often ask myself, “How does he do that?” Yet, if you were to meet Mr. Cook, you would surely be asking someone, “Is this THE John Cook, the guy that paints all those colorful, bold, amazing paintings?” Your question of course would be justified, for the public John Cook is quiet, low key, and reserved…and that’s what I find so intriguing about him. I’ve just got to know what the deal is with him…so I asked him.

You’ll love this interview and his amazing work. Photos showing the progressive steps of a painting will blow you away."

Here’s Johnny!
