ARTIST STATEMENT

Ivy Cox's 'Record Series' is based on her idealization of the 1970s aura. With a strong sense of color theory, pattern and painting, Ivy has created a series that encapsulates the essence of the time period. The intention of the series is to reflect back on an earlier time period and bask in the happiness that each piece generates. Each piece is painted with acrylic on a vinyl record that has been thrifted and upcycled as a canvas.
