Crystal Cox studied at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas and The Atlanta College of Art, receiving her BFA from SMU in Studio Art & Advertising and an additional degree in Interior Design from the Atlanta College of Art. Crystal’s work as an independent interior designer gives her a deep understanding of visual aesthetics and color schematics in both residential and commercial interiors. She has been painting off and on for 25 years and is now an Atlanta based multi-media artist.
Crystal’s most recent works are on birch panel boards with layers of resin, acrylic paint, oil crayons, photographic transfer and precious metals. She embraces a complicated process using tools such as a blow-torch and various sanders and buffers to prep between layers. She calls herself a “process junkie” and likes to experiment changing the viscosity of paint with various additives and mediums to change the interplay of color often creating cells of color within color. To give her pieces longevity she uses layers of resin with a UVA/UVB sunscreen agent to protect her pieces.
“I’m inspired by Gustav Klimt’s Byzantine embellishments; the colors of rain storms in the Bahamas; O’Keefe’s organic flowers; Robert Delaunay and orphism; the many colors of pearls; Duchamp’s witty take on cubism and futurism; Matisse’s biomorphic figures; Van Gogh’s color palette and Pablo Picasso’s manic work ethic.”
