I had the pleasure of being interviewed by iARTistas recently. Here is an excerpt of the interview:
"Q&A with FREAK OUT! Exhibition artist ADRIAN COX
Tell us about your current series.
My current work centers around a cast of monstrous characters that I call the Border Creatures. Some of my paintings are portraits of these recurring characters while others depict more ritualistic scenes such as funerary customs or rites of transformation. The Border Creatures spend a lot of time in the forest trying to become one with nature, which only occasionally works out well.
Recently I've been focusing on the world that these characters live in (the Borderlands) through the language of landscape painting. The narrative that I'm building allows me to explore the stranger aspects of embodiment with a sense of play. I'm constantly trying to surprise myself with the hybrid forms that I create; this is the very reason that I've thrown myself more fully into sculpting elaborate models of the Border Creatures before painting them.
