Sunset Strip is the first monograph of the British artist Johnnie Cooper's work, joining a curatorial initiative over recent decades to undertake important re-evaluations of the careers of key twentieth- and twenty-first-century artists such as Tess Jaray, William Turnbull and Carmen Herrera.

Johnnie Cooper has, for the past half century, devoted himself to a tireless investigation into the nature and potential of painting in his rural Worcestershire studio, constantly exploring new principles and processes. Sunset Strip charts the journey of Johnnie Cooper's signature investigations into colour, line and form, from the figurative totems sculpted in his student days to the rich Abstract Expressionist works of the 1980s and the gestural Minimalist works of the past two decades.
