Towards Abstraction: John Cox

Release Date: June 08, 2023

The second featured artist of the week from Towards Abstraction, the exhibition now on view at Town Hall is John Cox. John’s works lay bare the process of painting. At its heart, painting is the action of applying pigment suspended in a medium to a surface. John’s work relies on the relationships established by his process to arrive at a final composition. Yet with nothing more than pigment applied to a surface, viewers may glimpse the churn of waves in Atomic Tide, mountaintops in Twin Peaks, or be met with a wall of noise or interference in Broken Machines.

“My interest lies in translating the experience of digital disorder into gestural marks, loosely mimicking wave patterns. Initially drawing from TV static and garbled video game graphics, my visual sources now range from glitched out video games to Japanese wood block printing. Employing the formal elements of painting, color, and composition to construct an image allows work to draw on the rich tradition of abstract painting.” -John Cox
