"I have been going to the Ferry Building Farmers Market since, well since before it opened. Over the past 20+ years I have developed friendships with vendors and chefs and other Ferry Building regulars. On most Saturdays mornings you can find me at the Wine Bar after shopping for weekly victuals. The people watching are unequaled. This is a painting of a flower vendor and artist that I have come to know."Rob Cox

This work is included in the "Urban Tides: A San Francisco Story" group exhibition at Voss Gallery (July 13 - August 17, 2024).


Born in 1957 in Stoneham, MA, Cox received his B.F.A. in Painting and Art History from the Massachusetts College of Art. In 1990, he moved to San Francisco and continued his studies at the University of California Extension, Berkeley.

Rob Cox paints the urban landscape as well as figures and everyday objects. He believes that painting is about paint. "It's about the application of colors and pigment to the surface. I want the viewer to see the process of painting. The scumbled brush strokes and lumps of paint are as integral to the work as the illusion of a roadway in the distance."

Rob’s work is a pop style with muddy underpinnings. It germinates in the works of Paul Cezanne, David Park and Richard Diebenkorn. Representational painting is a foundation to push images beyond their literal explanation and then pull back into the object to create a restrained tension of something slightly off kilter. He sees the thing as new, somehow more precious than the original.


Artwork is ready to hang on the wall; hanging wire is secured on the back (nail and hook needed). Dust raw canvas with a clean, soft brush and HEPA-filtered vacuum to clean. Using a new, clean brush prevents transfer of grime from previous dustings.
