Melissa Cooke received her MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her powdered graphite works explore themes of beauty, fantasy, violence, and identity, with the artist casting herself as subject in a myriad of thematic scenarios. Her work confronts the viewer, both with scale and stirring reflections of relationships, sexuality, and gender.
