Ones to Watch: Cybele Cox

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

For sculptor Cybele Cox, making figurative works of ceramics acts as a portal with two destinations: into the realm of the mystical, and into the more tangible world of the western art canon. The artist – who has exhibited in Sydney, Melbourne and Vienna and featured in The Age, Sydney Morning Herald and Museum Magazine – uses hand-built ceramic totems, painting, drawing and costume as a means of world-merging, fusing symbols from the mythic world with fantasies for a new feminist order. If Cybele has her way, the importance of the spiritual realm will be reinstated within our secular society, borne on the back of a reverent and challenging art practice.
