Larry Zox was an American Abstract expressionist and Lyrical Abstraction painter, though he preferred his work not be classified into singular categories. His exuberant geometric abstractions made a strong contribution to the Color Field movement of the 1960s and ’70s. Zox created many of his signature works during this era, painting diamonds, triangles and other hard-edged shapes that were arranged into brilliant collages of dynamically juxtaposed colors. His later works were more nuanced with loose, rough-edged strips of color orchestrated between streaky white lines. Zox studied at the University of Oklahoma and at the Des Moines Art Center under George Grosz. He was honored by a solo show at the prestigious Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and his works are showcased in prestigious galleries around the world. Zox died in 2006.
