My solo exhibition "Terra Incognita" opens at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles on February 24th. In this new body of work, I've continued to expand on the mythological narrative of the Border Creatures, a race of hybrid beings that populate my work. The paintings in this show chronicle a time of conflict in the lives of the Border Creatures. These characters are forced to adapt in order to survive the spectral forces threatening to destroy them and their forested home, the Borderlands. These new works examine the interconnectedness between human identity and nature, and ultimately serve as a celebration of otherness.
Opening Reception: Saturday February 24 7-11pm
On view February 24- March 24

Ineffable magazine wrote an article about my work! Check it out HERE.
"Cox disrupts the traditional way we confront beauty in art, using portraiture and landscape to create a simultaneously seductive and repulsive subject. His portraits are of deformed creatures morphing to their environment, mutated, or sporting open wounds. The landscapes are at times vibrant and colourful, and other times, dark and ominous. Cox states, "There’s a comic absurdity in some of the works that I think makes the characters more relatable. It’s hard to be terrified by a creature that has a bird or butterflies perched on its head, or one that’s wearing a garland of flowers. With the Grotesque, there’s also a level of the unknown and the unfamiliar, which I’m deeply interested in." Despite the fantastical setting and hints of mythology, Cox's paintings speak to a subtler realism where beauty and monstrosity coincide."
