    there Look at this look at me And so much is stuffed into each painting so many tricks and wiles and so much romance Cox loves paint loves what it can do he loves to shock and amaze and stuff each canvas full In an earlier work CONSPIRATORS 1985 his brush was cooler his treatment less baroque his subjects simpler and his ambitions quite realized less Now he has flowered and flourished and generated all these crammed canvases And if the subject matter is supposedly an ironic and often unpleasant comment on our time the reality of the work is Cox s treatment and his skill For that at the end of the day is what is offered late romantic work that relies on craft and the narrative of the subject The singularity of vision and the intensity of image is actually rather conventional for a romantic realist who choses to ignore the times is apt to be integrated into convention into values and an agenda well used used perhaps to advantage but always lacking the shock of recognition brought by the new Cox probably does not care too much for the new these times those who paint with sticks and stones He is content to wage his war on the old battleground with the old weapons even if the same victories are won and lost Here he has a victorious exhibition on his own ground on his own terms and who am I standing on alien ground to deny him Peter Cox Figure In Figure Out Review Magazine June 15 1999 By Mark Daniel Cohen Figurative art has two modes the narrative scene and the figure study and they are aligned to the two inner images The two modes are comparable to the drama and the lyric in literature and they serve similar functions Narrative art illustrates a moment captured from an implied story a moment in a sequence of events that is suggestive of the entirety of the story and it invariably conveys the story as we would like to play it the story as we would like it to turn out the way we would prefer to recognized by others The study is the presentation of the isolated figure Even if the figure is presented in a setting it is seen apart from any revealing context or story It conveys in the style of rendering a conception of an autonomous human nature Both modes are in evidence in Figure In Figure Out Among the works of the pure non contextualized human image at M B Modern the most impressive are those of Peter Cox who may be the best figurative artist now working in New York Just inside the door of the gallery are two drawings hung side by side done in ink pastel charcoal and pencil on pastel cloth FEMALE BACK STUDY 2 1999 and FEMALE BACK STUDY 3 1999 They are spectacular for their precision of observation and their demonstrated mastery of drawing technique The
