statement:
As both artist and scientist, Cox appreciates and interprets the subtleties of the natural environment, with an increasing desire to draw a tangible part of the landscape into her artwork by incorporating natural resources into her pieces.

During recent research, the artist’s intention has been to gain a thorough understanding of the use and application of natural pigments and dyestuffs and their techniques in relation to fine art painting and textiles.

At present, Cox is working with microscopy – viewing dyes and pigments under polarized light and exploring the images on a series of large scale canvases.
