Lucy Cox's paintings interrupt the autonomy of geometric abstraction, rhythm and pattern through interval and obstruction. In her Zippy series, technically drawn forms dance across the canvas, coming to sudden stops or recesses in compositions. Although these paintings are carefully pre-planned, decisions made inside sectioned boundaries become dictated by intuition: lines are left broken in systematic grids, circular forms are often modified spontaneously during the process, still revealing layers underneath. Titles reference a specific action occurring in the work, 'Zippy' relating to pop-esque colour relationships and speediness. Cox's current and on-going works further investigate ideas of action, particularly relationships between tension, rhythm and rupture.
