Larry Zox


Opposed to the gestural and expressive style of Abstract Expression, Larry Zox devised a mechanical system of producing art. The structured yet radiant surfaces of Zox’s work is evident in his Gemini series produced between 1967 to 1970.  In Gemini Series I, each square features four-pointed stars of a single color surrounded by obtuse triangles on all four sides. Applying paint with a silk-screen squeegee achieved Zox’s acclaimed smooth and even surfaces. Tape removed after the painting process provides a thin, blank, border space between every shape.
