OVERTURE: JOHN COX
May 10 - JUNE 9, 2021
This solo exhibition of abstract paintings features a selection of celestial landscapes executed on wood panels in mixed media. Inspired by the bold emotion of Gustav Holst, the intricate repetition of Philip Glass and the trance-like sounds of electronica, this new body of work pushes the limits of light and space to capture serene vistas of the imagination.
Originally from Atlanta, Cox has been a professional artist for over twenty years, pursuing both fine art and commercial illustration. Cox now resides in Hendersonville, NC where he finds the natural beauty of Western North Carolina to be inspirational for creating artwork that maintains a delicate balance of illusion, geometry and wonder.
