Robert Cottingham Fox

Robert Cottingham Fox 2009 is a colored Screenprint on wove paper with full margins. Robert Cottingham Fox is from of the American Signs Portfolio. This print is signed, numbered, and dated with a printer’s proof edition of 10, aside from the edition limited edition of 100.

In the American Signs Portfolio, Robert Cottingham depicts mid-20th-century signs or what he has calls the “tools of the Everyman,” in various dynamic compositions with intensified color and light. The artist has described his fascination with signs as originating from trips to Times Square as a child: “I think that’s when the seed was planted, when I saw the kind of activity going on above the ground level.” Obsessed with the precise geometry of his subjects, Cottingham’s process incorporates a series of steps that can include sketches, photographs, shapes mapped onto grids, and model construction. His crisp, often-monumental canvases celebrate and accentuate the forms of his subjects while remaining devoid of nostalgia. He lists Franz Kline, Edward Hopper, and the New Realists among his influences.
