In the hands of Tony Cox, everyday found objects come together to compose deeply personal narratives. His colorful abstractions demonstrate a playful, handcrafted quality while maintaining a spiritual edge - perhaps to make up for the rituals and traditions he feels are lacking in the United States. Attributinh his knack for sewing to his grandmother, Cox is able to embroider with a mysticism that alludes to the religions of Morocco, Spain, and India. In Persian Princess Mourning Her Peacock, the artist uses sock holders, feathers, barrettes, mesh netting, fabric and paint to create a mask-like collage, a prime example from a larger series of work called "Recycled Relations." Cox collects materials from his travels, the results yielding a glimpse of the metaphysical and maybe even the supernatural.
Comes in a black or white painted wood frame, 3/4" wide flat face and 1" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
