"My Aunt's Table"

(36” h x 16” w)
Mixed media: (embossed acrylics on masonite,
with incised lines and embedded lace).

NOTE:  At the front of the table cloth is an embedded piece of lace reminiscent of the female sexual orifice (overt enough in person, perhaps harder to see in this small, on screen version). The symbolic function of the table in Cox’s work pre-dates this painting by a number of years. See Cox’s short story ‘Table’ (1952) in the selection of poetry and prose for elaboration of this motif.
