Matthew Cox is an astonishingly versatile artist whose current repertoire includes oil painting, drawings created through stamping on paper and embroidery on x-ray film. I like his playfullness and his "low-brow" art approach.
As his press release says - In his search for alternative drawing materials, Cox utilizes subject specific rubber stamps as his drawing tool. Rubber stamps have become part of his lexicon and his renderings capture the essence of the subject in both words and precise portraiture. Embroidered X-Rays are Cox’s latest discovery… literally hand stitching the X-Rays, bringing them to life and resurrecting the subject from the material. Cox’s multifarious bodies of work strengthen one another by balancing technical and conceptual concerns with humor and formal beauty.
