Melinda Zox is an emerging Abstract Expressionist painter who studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City under Frank Roth. Zox is the daughter of abstract painter Larry Zox who played an essential roll in the Color Field discourse of the 1960s and 1970s and his artist wife Jean Glover Zox. As a result, she was raised in the heart of the downtown New York City art scene. Her childhood, she says, was “a continual lesson in the experience of art and creativity. Art, color and expression were part of our daily life and almost every conversation.”
