First City by Cedric Cox, 87 x 17 inches, acrylic on panel board.
Join me for One New Painting Opening Friday August 31st at Frame Design. The exhibition will feature over twenty contemporary painters. In this showcase of talent I will debut “First City”. The architecture of the Cincinnati Museum Center and other monuments of our great city inspired this work. To RSVP on facebook for this exhibition follow this link. Click the link below to see the painting in progress.
Myself along with painters Beth Goldstein and Mary Barr Rhoads will be featured together in the exhibition Transformation: Interpretation of Space and Place. The physical environment of the inner city and the dense architectonic shapes which reference musical allegories and all over pictorial rhythm are a consistent theme in my work. Complimenting the theme of the exhibition, I will present a compilation of paintings that I have completed over the past two to three years. Though the subject matter and intent remains the same in these works, there is a shift with how space and place with my subjects is interpreted.

"A Tribute to Thunder- Sky" by Cedric Michael Cox and Raymond Thunder- Sky
It’s an honor to be apart of the Thunder-Sky Inc. “2+2=5: Collaberations”
exhibition. Like the Raymond Thunder-Sky Legacy Mural
designed by Antonio Adams
, I was once again inspired by the spirit of Raymond and his everlasting love for the circus. Follow this link to learn more about the exhibition and the timeless collaboration between Antonio Adams and Brian Joiner
Paul's Diamond by Diamond Snowden and Cedric Michael Cox
Working with Visionaries and Voices
artist Diamond Snowden for Double Vision II
,was an absolute pleasure. As a studio coordinator at V&V, I have always shared with Diamond my experiences working in my studio and the ritual of painting. The Visionaries and Voices Double Vision project was a chance for both Diamond and I to collaborate and understand each other’s process. Side by side in my studio and at V&V we planed and executed this painting together pushing, pulling and refining architectonic imagery that referenced allegories in music and urban text design and pattern. The piece “Paul’s Diamond” is named after Paul Klee
. Like Mr. Klee, Diamond also had an influence on me. He not only created a design that celebrated both of our interest in representational abstraction
, he also gave me new insight on a recent piece that I am currently working on. Come out and see other great collaborations of V&V artist with other local artist at Double Vision on April 23rd at Memorial Hall.
