Will Cotton
Within New York’s art scene, Will Cotton is a veteran. At 48-years-old, the Massachusetts-born Cotton has lived and worked in New York for quite some time now. Using painting as his preferred medium, he was known for utilizing pop icons sourced from contemporary advertisement in the 90s. And only three years ago he worked on Katy Perry’s album art for "California Gurls." A graduate of Cooper Union, he also spent some time studying in France at the École Regionale des Beaux-Arts in Rouen and La Napoule Art Foundation. His paintings tend to depict a real life candy land with female characters eliciting similar feelings of consumption. And in 2004, he received the Princess Grace Foundation award for contemporary art in Monaco. Cotton relishes maquettes of baked goods and how immersing himself in this aroma inspires his work. In 2009, he even installed a pop-up French bakery art installation at Partners & Spade in New York, inviting the public to experience first-hand his artistic process. In his spread, we see his compulsion to ensconce himself in his work and, by extension, incessant and luxurious pleasure. Since 2000, Cotton has been represented by Mary Boone Gallery in New York among many others around the world.
