Artist Statement

Amorelle Jacox’s paintings are born out of a profound sense of cosmic free-fall. Tables and black holes hover in a realm where slippage between figure and object and space probes questions about the limits of body and knowledge. Where metaphor pries open depths of metaphysical inquiry; and amorphous ellipses find their individual natures in relation to each other. That, with a singular brushstroke, the sky’s stomach might fold into a plate, and that plate might slip between the days.
