Rachel Cox: Feel Some Type of Way

Opening Reception for the Artist
Saturday, July 16, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Cox considers connections between objects and behavior, and specifically how we depend on certain objects as a means for combating feelings of social inadequacy.  Working with images of hot tubs and associated items, Cox draws attention to the absurdity of our need for objects and the affected sense of intimacy that they can provide.  Cox’s images are seemingly straightforward, but they offer a subtle glimpse into human tendencies that often go unnoticed and without judgment or editorial comment.

Recently, Cox’s photographs were featured at the FORMAT festival and Photo London through LensCulture magazine, and her work has been shown at The Atlanta ContemporaryArt Center, Houston Center for Photography, David Weinberg Gallery in Chicago, and the Philadelphia Photo Art Center. In addition, the artist’s work has been published in the British Journal of Photography IL’oeil de la PhotographieThe Huffington PostFeature MagazineVice Magazine, and The Guardian. Cox received her MFA degree from the University of New Mexico in 2013.
