Stephen Cox

  • CountryUnited Kingdom
  • Born1946


The sculptor Stephen Cox was born in Bristol, and in the late sixties studied at the Central School of Art and Design in London.

His early stone sculptures make reference to the architecture of classical antiquity and often include archaeological fragments. The Mediterranean as the cradle of civilisation of the Western world provides the context for these works.

In the eighties, his work developed toward a dialogue with non-Western cultures and in 1986 Cox represented Britain at the Sixth Indian Triennale in New Delhi. In the past year Cox has worked at the Carrara marble quarries in Italy, on sculptures for exhibitions in the Piazza del Duomo, Siena; the National Gallery, London; and at Val d’Osta where he has had a solo exhibition.
