Thank you, Springer School and Center, for selecting me to be your 2023 artist in residence. “Together We Grow,” is a painting I executed with a core group of 8th grade students who share a unique passion for the arts. The painting pays homage to the curriculum that is set up at the school, which allows each student to develop and learn together at a measured and equal pace. In addition to working with the core group of students, I also conducted art lessons for all the students of the school from grades 1st through 8th based around some of my favorite influences from art history. Thank you to the amazing staff and inspiring students for making me feel so at home.

Recent Paintings and Drawings at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center
The exhibition Talking Blues, featuring recent paintings and drawings by Cedric Michael Cox holds a metaphoric and literal definition with works that celebrate his cubist influence, fused with literal elements from the worlds of music, architecture, nature and the eternal creative spirit.
“Historically my art draws from Cubism and the fracturing of forms through the picture plane. In contemporary terms, I deconstruct the meaning of music in particular and the elements of urban and natural environments. This past school year I had the honor of celebrating the artwork of Spanish Cubist painter Juan Gris in my lessons with my students. Unlike Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and other artist who occasionally used cubism as a means of expression, Gris stayed loyal to the movement and created works of art that still to this day inspire me. Reviewing Gris’s work and other past influences that worked in the genre ignited a new insight and interest in my painting. As Miles Davis( in Jazz) or Picasso termed the color Blue in their art forms, Talking Blues, is my own reference to the rediscovery of past influence and how it still evokes the visual experiences that arouse my senses, as I examine and interpret, the world around me, quietly and loudly.” Come out to the Clifton Cultural Arts Center for the opening reception on October 2nd. The exhibition will continue through November 5th, 2015
