Industrial strength in miniature springs forth in Tim Cox’ accurate, but raw, aluminum casts of dumpsters, laundry carts and construction containers.  The reduction in scale permits an appreciation of the abstract geometry of everyday things one tends to give little thought to.  As the Bauhaus long ago demonstrated there is beauty and purity to be found in utilitarian objects.  Unlike the polish required by these early modernist designers, Cox leaves all of the casting flaws, core material and rough edges.  This moves these works away from being maquettes or toy models to sculptural objects that have a real weight and power belying their small scale.

A similar interest and respect for ‘heavy metal’ is seen in the paintings.  Rolled aluminum panels have a thin wash of pigment, thus allowing the support material to remain visible.  The machinery and tool imagery imposed upon these surfaces reinforces both the industrial look the geometry.
