Caroline Cox, Spin

In adjoining rooms inside a project studio at the Clocktower Gallery, Caroline Cox juxtaposed two installations; Spin, a sprawling, immersive work made of hand sewn white vegetable packaging mesh is sited in an all black environment, and OrangeBlueOrange is a piece that emphasizes saturated colored shadows cast in part by acrylic balls that simultaneously reflect their surroundings.

Both works grew organically out of Cox’s improvisational process where manufactured objects are repeatedly altered and manipulated in ways that subvert their traditional function while documenting their subtle interactions with such natural phenomenon as light, space and gravity. By entwining associations tethered to recognizable objects with topologies of the material world Cox explores perception, questioning the relationship of subjectivity to physical matter and phenomenon.

Cox also installed ‘Scuse Me While I Kiss The Sky, Remix in the reception window of the Clocktower Gallery. This piece is comprised of hundreds of glass lens suspended over an array of convex and concave mirrors to create a kaleidoscopic, ever mutating optical field.

"Although you don’t literally leave the ground, the sculptures’ pulsing aureoles do their best to convince you otherwise. One moment you’re in the institutional-white hallway of a neglected municipal building and the next you’re among star clusters and jellyfish, crepuscular clouds and aggregating amoebae.
Cox melds a sculptor’s sense of materials, solids and voids with a stage designer’s gift for lighting and space. In her work, which consists of synthetic netting, mirrors, lenses and clear acrylic balls, abstraction is less a distillation of form than an analogy for the textures of life."
- Thomas Micchelli for Hyperallergic.

Open House Open Studios, 27 March 2012

The Open House on Tuesday March 27 makes it possible to see the Winter/Spring 2012 projects and meet the artists working in our studios: Julie Covello aka DJ Shakey, Caroline Cox, Sabisha Friedberg, and Haroon Mirza, plus to take a tour through the Canyon Candy exhibition. Caroline Cox juxtaposes two installations; Spin, a sprawling, immersive work made of hand sewn white vegetable packaging mesh installed in an all black environment, and OrangeBlueOrange, a piece that emphasizes saturated colored shadows cast in part by acrylic balls that simultaneously reflect their surroundings. Plus a special mirror magic creation for our entrance window display. Haroon Mirza is the first Clocktower Gallery/Island Studio Sessions project artist. The British artist’s sculptures and installations were assembled from an eclectic inventory of objects, from found bits of furniture, electrical appliances and outmoded musical equipment.
