Mr. Larry Zox does not have an image.
A Native of Des Moines (born 1936) now living in New York, Larry Zox is an abstract artist who utilzes color and space in a unique way. He utilizes color combinations with references to nature, music, or the city that surrounds him. But often there is a black section that is places in the work fo the sake of the painting's aethetics alone. The work ranges form the harmonious to the unexpected. All the work is doen with a tremendous amount of technical control.
Zox received his education including the study of oriental Art History at Oklahoma University, Norman, Drake University, Des Moines , Iowa and the German artist George Grosz at the Des Moines Art Center. He has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship and has received grants form the National Council of the arts and the Ester and Adolph Gottieb Foundation He has been an Artist-in Residence at University of North Carolina, Creensboro, Dartmouth College, and Yale University.
Zox moved to Minimalist arylics in the 1960s, featuring geometrics shapes such as chevrons, diamonds and trangles. In the early 1970s, large-scale color fields were centrailized with bands of color along the sides, sometimes as wide as the central color, moving diagonally or vertically downward, singly or in groups.
During the nest several years, colors were applied in looping lines with oil sticks and bushes, and larger areas were sometimes poured on and spread into wet grounds. Later, Narrow panels such as "Catawba" emphsized color changes in the ground using many shades of one color, often muted or darkened with grey, in think, steady bushstrokes.
