Larry Cook’s artist statement:
My artwork is in the direct observation of the world as a means to engage social issues, in particular, a critical view of Black America. Through film photography and video appropriation I addresses American identity and its connection. Appropriation is used to reflect upon these topics, enabling the work to connect with the audience. My work is an expression of the internal conflict between the past and present through the filter of black culture.
