As well as being a poet, Christopher Cook is also an artist whose work has been exhibited in the UK, USA, China and Japan. His poetry books include For and Against Nature and New Nerves; and through the combination of word and image, A thoroughbred golden calf, a Mythic Cycle and Dust on the Mirror span both art and poetry. In 1992 he was Visiting Fellow to the Ruskin School, Oxford, and Distinguished Visiting artist to CalSate University, USA; and he is now a Reader in Painting at the University of Plymouth.
