Diana Cooper creates complex systems that engage and transform into multi-sensory environments. Cooper’s work combines drawing, painting, sculpture, and installation practices. Some of her works concern the inner workings of the mind – the impulses to play, to invent, and to change while others employ systems and patterns that seem to possess an endless labyrinthine complexity.
