B Shawn Cox creates in the warm, soft light of pop philosophy with analog transformations of documented social and personal mythologies from nostalgic materials and icons. His role as an is artist inspired by two responsibilities - first to capture, emote and communicate an idea and then, to transform the chosen medium itself as part of the expression. Both explore the artist is a cartographer, mapping an understanding of what is while constantly calibrating and discovering the path using his own internal compass. The impetus of his current body of work is outdated paper-based information and the iconic figures and stereotypes perpetuated by popular culture and social mythologies.
