Artist / Personal Statement

I always infuse my work with an active, vibrant, sensuous love of existence. For me the solidity of all real spirituality is central to everything I do. I also find color particularly delicious and prefer to capture it in ‘motion’.

Over time I have found inspiration in ancient icons as well as the movement and evocative aspects of art and life on the heroic scale, even when concerned with the ‘minutia’ of nature.

My own journey has taken me through landscape, figure, face and abstraction; but always the form emerges, triumphant, out of apparent chaos.

My own spirituality remains at the core of every piece, informing and vitalizing the subject and its emergence. One of the means to evoke this interconnectedness, for me, is creating a series around themes such as Creation, Woman, Transformations, Mystery and Song, or simply to invite us deeper into the richness of life however ordinary.

Gay P. Cox.
