Talking Blues: Paintings and Drawings by Cedric Michael Cox

The exhibition Talking Blues, featuring recent paintings and drawings by Cedric Michael Cox, holds a metaphoric and literal definition; with works that celebrate his cubist influence, fused with literal elements from the worlds of music, architecture, nature and the eternal creative spirit.

The exhibition Talking Blues, featuring recent paintings and drawings by Cedric Michael Cox, holds a metaphoric and literal definition; with works that celebrate his cubist influence, fused with literal elements from the worlds of music, architecture, nature and the eternal creative spirit.“Historically my art draws from Cubism and the fracturing of forms through the picture plane. In comparative terms, I deconstruct the meaning of music in particular (as a musician as well as a visual artist), in addition to the elements of urban environments as well as natural environments. This past school year I had the honor of celebrating the artwork of Spanish Cubist painter Juan Gris in my lessons with my students. Unlike Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and other artists who occasionally used cubism as a means of expression, Gris stayed dedicated to the movement and created works of art that to this day still inspire me. Reviewing Gris’ work, and other past influences that worked in the genre, ignited a new insight and interest in my painting. As Miles Davis ( in Jazz), or Picasso termed the color Blue in their art forms, Talking Blues, is my own reference to the rediscovery of past influences, and how it continues to evoke the visual experiences that arouse my senses, as I examine and interpret, the world around me, quietly and loudly.”Cedric Michael Cox 2015
