RED – Steve Cox (Spock)
Opening drinks and meet the artist
Sat 10 June 2pm to 4pm
The intention of my art always, is to communicate and please an audience of one. My favoured medium is oil paint on canvas, I also do drawings using marker pens, coloured pencils and ink on paper at different stages of my artistic process. I use varying techniques and styles either independently or combined in my work.
My art is an expression of my emotional and artistic response to the environment and circumstance I find myself at any given time. Paintings are the end product of storytelling to myself of an evolving narrative, generally me trying to decipher and understand the world around, these works can take weeks or months as I tend to paint when I have a feel for the work I am doing. I enjoy geometric and abstract painting as a form of artistic meditation, experimentation and practice.
For the last 25 years my palette has consisted mainly of primary colours and from 1995 I discarded black. I use mainly small to medium chisel and fine point acrylic brushes, applying thin layers of paint to build my colours. I like intimate size canvases with most works under a square metre in size, as my transient lifestyle has meant large canvasses are impractical.
