new paintings Cybele Cox
The deepest cavern of the mind is the subconscious. And within this is an even further inaccessible part of the cave which is the drive towards nothingness.
Cybele’s paintings are stylised surrealist interiors of woodgrain and rock, with fissures, cracks and portals. This organic architecture is a theatrical setting for primordial creatures, beasts and imps that represent the original part of ourselves: the ancient psyche that dwells in the deepest recess of the unconscious.
Cybele Cox is an artist residing in Sydney. She has had several solo shows and been involved in numerous group exhibitions. She teaches painting to adults and children and studies astrology and the occult arts.

The sculptures are concerned with the appropriation of ready-made materials and their formation into new compositional constructions. They replicate the module in a non-referential, non-objective manner.Their appearance addresses issues of transience and non-presence.
The sculptures are made from PVC-U pipe and spray painted flat white enamel. They are mounted directly to the wall using a simple anchor bracketing system. The works are bleached with fluorescent lights and are viewed as a complete installation rather than as individual objects.
