Andrew LeMay Cox

b. 1987

Andrew LeMay Cox explores visual storytelling with a process that fuses the traditions of academic painting with a process and narrative that is uniquely his own.  His work is constructed using ink that is baked at high temperatures and is assembled by painting on skins. The skins hang loosely from the stretcher, adding sculptural properties to two dimensional surfaces. His aesthetic narrative allows the viewer to escape reality and get lost in a utopian landscape that stands outside society’s constructs concerning race, religion, and politics. Andy’s figures are ageless. They sing, dance and make love without cause, limitation, or destination.
