We recognize Darryl Cox as the artist that creates art inspired on tree branch, most properly, artistic branch frame.
“A reclaimed tree branch or root, a re-purposed frame, and my passion — art that unites humble, as well as involved, objects, into a kind of their own. I create art that is distinctive and intricate, yet in its truest sense, uncomplicated.”
As much as he embraces convention in art, his Fusion Frame art fulfills his part that says “no” to convention. That it is not only okay to be avant-garde, it is right. I like to embrace alternatives to an accepted order in art. To even, at times, completely ignore conventions when fashioning a piece and enjoy the unbounded ability to create by refusing to be limited by precept.
I enjoy seeking out unique frames, wherever they may be. And, I love being outdoors reclaiming extraordinary tree branches and roots. Especially when most of the time it involves spending a day or two in the forests of Central Oregon, but other wonderful places, too. It is a challenge to match a frame and branch. Finding a faultless marriage is rewarding in and of itself. Then, each project involves woodworking, sculpting and painting; which I also enjoy. I find it meaningful to commit the time required to merge a man-made as well as natural element into an artwork that captures imagination. Tailoring a Fusion Frame with a sentimental object for someone is even more rewarding — it captures life!
Darryl has been doing Fusion Frame art since 2011 and he is passionate about it and passing them to others so that they can enjoy them as much as the artist does.
My passion drives me to never accept limits on the possibilities.
