Ethan Cook is a Texas-born, New York-based artist known for his minimalist works and woven art. The abstract woven pieces feature color block compositions in bold colorways on self-made canvases. The geometric “paintings” are made from sewn pieces of canvas that Cook has woven on a four-harness floor loom. Once the various pieces are sewn together, they make up the canvas that’s then stretched on bars for hanging. Shaking things up, Cook has recently translated his signature aesthetic to woven Flat Works rugs designed for HAY. Made of New Zealand wood and organic cotton, the throw rugs bring art directly to the floor in a more attainable way. In this Deconstruction, we head to Cook’s studio to get a better idea as to how and where he works, making these new rug designs and his regular work.
