Larry Zox

Larry Zox was a central figure in the evolution of abstraction in  American art of the 20th century. Raised in Des Moines, Iowa, Zox studied at the University of Oklahoma and went on to work under the tutelage of modernist Georg Grosz at the Des Moines Art Centre. Zox moved to New York City and established his reputation by the mid 1960's. His studio was located on 20th Street and he was surrounded and inspired by a melting pot of jazz artists, bikers, and boxers.


Zox was one of the most successful practitioners of hard-edge or geometric abstraction and not surprisingly was championed by Frank Stella, amongst others. By the mid 1960's, Zox arrived at his characteristic style, utilizing hard-edge shapes in bold colors to create geometric patterns, which were often created on raw canvas. Zox's hard-edge geometric creations from the late 1960's and early 1970's are arguably the most important from his oeuvre. Fittingly he had a retrospective at the Whitney Museum in 1973. Today, numerous museums including The Whitney, The MoMA, The Tate, and The Met all have examples of his work from this era.
