Sweet with Rot: Brennan Emmett Cox
Serving as a visual erasure of modern advertisements, Brennan Emmett Cox’s work examines the superficiality of consumerism. His subjects burst and blot under the eroding forces of water and turpentine, and what was once the image of a person becomes a sensuous collection of lines and limbs stripped of identity. With varying painting techniques and materials, Cox’s work plays with dimensionality and language, imbuing his figurative abstractions with absurd poetry.
