LARGE Vintage Modern Abstract Lucite Acrylic Sculpture Signed Michael F. Cox "Original"
Sensational, One of a Kind, Thick Lucite Sculpture created using crackled texture effects, circular concaves & various indentations within the lucite. This piece can't be truly appreciated until seen in person, for it is difficult to capture the different "faces" the sculpture can display just by slightly turning the piece.
Signed "Michael F. Cox Original" this sculpture was created by Michael Cox, an American artist, craftsman and inventor. Prior to his successful career as a sculptor using acrylic as his medium of choice, Cox spent time on stage. For 15 years he performed on Broadway- in over 30 shows- including "Oklahoma," "Kiss Me Kate," "Carousel," and "Pal Joey." Cox was also featured on television classics such as The Jackie Gleason, Martha Raye & Imogene Coca Shows. He produced one of the Mel Torme's best albums, "Mel Torme Live at The Maisonette."
It has been said that Michael Cox has been one of the most imitated international artists of our time. Through commissions, his patented lucite sculptures have been received by four Presidents of the United States, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford and George Bush. Other notables for who he has created pieces for include Pope John Paul II, King Husein of Jordan, Prince Benddar of Saudi Arabia, Bob Hope, Lena Horne, Jack Kemp, Lee Iacocca, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Billy Jean King among many others.
This piece displays exceptionally well & is certain to be a conversation piece. It does have some very lite crazing on the bottom underside (the side that touches the table the piece is being displayed on) This can only be seen when picking up the piece and looking at the bottom & is very minor, almost not worth mentioning. This is also the area in which the signature and title of the piece can be found. You can still see both the signature and title regardless of the crazing. The sculpture itself is in great vintage condition, it has some lite surface scratches; which are only noticeable upon real close inspection. Certainly doesn't take away from how beautifully this sculpture displays as can be depicted by it's photographs. A few of the indentations/concaves have some dirt/dust in them, therefore one might want to clean some of these areas, this decision will be left up to it's new owner.
