"Creative Form (Pink Fish)"

1988
(approx. 19w by 27h)
Acrylic on masonite,
with incised lines and applied sand and lace.


NOTE:  In the mid 1950s Cox wrote CREATIVE FORM, an essay which describes his theories of form in relation to cone and sphere. This important essay was issued in 1988 in the Gogmagog Photocopy Library. This painting, of the same name, is fascinating since it utilizes later techniques - such as the incised white line and applications of material and other objects, but the artist in the picture is painting a pink fish in the vein of Coxs early aesthetics, constructed with the theory of cone and sphere outlined in the essay bearing the same name as this painting.
