JUDY HINTZ COX
Several years ago I became interested in Buddhism. Its teachings resonate for me. Attempting to understand emptiness has been an ongoing process. To be clear, emptiness is not nothingness. This study has resulted in using a new approach when I paint. I spend more time contemplating what I put on the canvas and taking out that which doesn’t belong.
Though my paintings are minimal, their execution is expressive. My paintings are produced with a combination of energy and meditation. I don’t expect everyone to like what I do, but if an emotion is felt, I believe have done my job.
The first time Hintz Cox applied oil paint to a canvas at age 26 she was “hooked”. That was over 40 years ago and Judy has never stopped painting. Her paintings were critiqued by several artists from 1971 to 1982 which was invaluable. Cox received her second BA in Studio Arts at the University of Maryland in 1984. Her first BA was in Sociology.
Judy is presently represented by eight galleries throughout the USA and her most recent solo exhibit in 2016 was at Contemporain Gallery in Baton Rouge, LA. Cox’s paintings are in many private and corporate collections including the home of Kelsey Grammer. She has donated many works to charities. Judy’s studio is in Oak Island, NC.
