Barrie Cooke’s work is represented in important collections both nationally and internationally. His practice was distinguished by his passion to link art and nature, calling attention to the destruction of rain forests and the contamination of lakes and rivers with their subsequent destruction of plants and fish. In sixty years of painting Cooke made over twenty-five portraits of poets, writers and artists, all of whom were his friends. These were shown together for the first time in an exhibition at the Butler Gallery in 2009.
