Teresa Cox

"My paintings are a vibrant dialogue between the natural world that we know and an invented space that re-imagines and sensationalizes its elements. This work is derived from my passion for the enigmatic and sublime and from an exploration of metaphor, longing and transcendence. I think of these paintings as both elaborate studies and invented worlds compressed and informed by experiences in nature and a desire to express the richness and mystery of everyday life. Each painting contains ideas, shapes, and colors developed through both small daily observations and grand sweeping experiences in nature. "

Within Teresa Cox's paintings, macro plant imagery and invented color-charged forms coalesce into surreal landscapes which play with memory, fantasy, and a desire to form new spaces while exploring ideas of our relationship to the natural world.

Cox has exhibited her paintings and drawings in the US at galleries, universities, and art centers including the Albuquerque Museum of Art in New Mexico, the Drawing Center in Chelsea, New York, and abroad at the Fortezza de Basso in Florence Italy.

She has completed numerous public art installations with her most recent sited across from the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota. She is a 2018 recipient of an Artist Initiative Grant through the Minnesota State Arts Board and a Vermont Studio Fellowship for residency work among others. Her artwork is in public and private collections in the US, Taiwan, Germany, and Australia.
