Quogue Library Announces TheAugust/September Outdoor Sculpture Artist Melinda Zox as our Uplift-2018 Outdoor Sculpture Series Artist of the Month! Melinda Zox is an emerging Abstract Expressionist painter who studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City under Frank Roth. Zox is the daughter of abstract painter Larry Zox who played an essential role in the Color Field discourse of the 1960s and 1970s and his artist wife Jean Glover Zox. As a result, she was raised in the heart of the downtown New York City art scene. Her childhood, she says, was “a continual lesson in the experience of art and creativity. Art, color and expression were part of our daily life and almost every conversation.” Melinda’s original sculpture will be on display outside the Quogue Library for the months of August and September 2018. Artist Statement: As an artist, I work hard to develop paintings that speak both to me and to others about the beauty that exists in space, color and movement. I am drawn to color and influenced by bold, strong lines as well as dynamic powerful shapes. The work is grounded by quiet and still lines interrupted by layers of explosive energetic color. I feel exhilarated when I paint a new line of color interrupting the flat space creating movement, and flow. I layer the paint creating texture; building and adding more dimensions. Drawing has always been an inspirational form of expression for me. As a child, I was mesmerized by Michael Steiner steel sculptors and Alexander Calder’s mobiles as well as the NYC architecture. I have to paint; it is my life’s blood. Paint and canvas have become instruments for me to express my feelings and be heard. Visit the grounds of The Quogue Library to view during the months of August and September!
