Cole Carothers (b. 1949) and Courttney Cooper (b. 1977) each address Cincinnati as both subject and content. Though their styles and methods are distinct from one another, a common desire to communicate their experiences of the city links these two artists. Cincinnati and its environs are an ongoing source of visual and conceptual material. Carothers is a classically trained oil painter who has developed a significant body of work in a landscape tradition. He builds on this tradition by creating views of Cincinnati that extend beyond simple observation and transform painted gestures into buildings and buildings back into painted gestures. Cooper creates large-scale aerial view "maps" of Cincinnati using nothing more than copier paper, ballpoint pens, and a deep knowledge of the city built upon a lifetime of traveling on city buses, walking downtown, and taking car trips with friends.
