Teresa Cox creates paintings which contain macro plant imagery and invented color charged forms which coalesce into surreal spaces playing with memory, fantasy and new associations while exploring our relationship to the natural world. Cox grew up in the twin cities and studied studio arts at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and Stout University in Wisconsin. She holds a BS in Studio Arts with concentrations in painting in drawing.
Cox has exhibited in the US at galleries, universities and art centers including the Albuquerque Museum of Art in New Mexico, the Drawing Center in Chelsea, New York and abroad at the Fortezza de Basso in Florence Italy. She has completed numerous public art installations with her most recent sculpture sited across from the Mall of America in Bloomington Minnesota. She is both a 2018 recipient of an Artist Initiative Grant through the Minnesota State Arts Board and a Sam and Adele Golden Foundation Residency among others. Her artwork is in public and private collections in the US, Taiwan, Germany and Australia.
