About the Work
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.
Tony Cox’s 2010 show at 211 Elizabeth Street, White Trash Mystic, was called an “an unequivocal success,” and he has since been included in solo exhibitions at Home Alone 2 (New York) and Marlborough Broome Street (New York), as well as group exhibitions at Salon 94 (New York), Marlborough (Chelsea), and White Columns (New York). Cox has been featured in Maker magazine, Interview magazine, Opening Ceremony, and Purple Diary. The artist lives and works in Woodstock, New York.
Authentication & Resale
This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist.

Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
