Lot Details

"Mahogany Orange 81-122" by Contemporary artist Larry Zox (American, 1937-2006) is executed on an oblong 49 x 90 inch canvas. Zox uses an orange acrylic wash to create an illusion of wood grain as the backdrop to this unique work. Known for his color field studies, Zox depicts horizontal, roughly painted stripes of pure colors; mainly, white, yellow, red and brown. Form comes secondary in Zox’s abstract works, with color as the primary tool for eliciting an emotional response from the viewer.
