Ethan Cook's Colorful Canvases

W's features editor wants to invest in this young talent.

At first, it was the subtle color palette that drew me to the work of this young New York artist. But then I discovered that his painterly canvases actually contain no paint; laboriously handwoven strips of cotton and linen create a wonderfully warm texture. Check out his current show, at New York’s American Contemporary gallery.
