Read what C. Grant Cox III has to say about play and his creative process in his artist statement below.

Play is the common thread that duct tapes our
imagination and the real world together. My practice is
a playful improvisation of combining found objects. As
a result, materials are ratchet strapped, clamped, bolted,
tied, and tacked together like IKEA furniture without
the instructions. Through these actions I present makeshift
machines that perform happenings of the everyday.
With this consumer residue I create contraptions
that explore notions of the grandiose and the pathetic.

We just can’t get enough of Cynthia Norton and C. Grant Cox III. Not only are Norton and Cox participating in Contraption, but their work appears in the DCCA’s satellite exhibit, Young Country. Curated by Maiza Hixson, Young Country addresses rural themes in contemporary American art. The exhibition has been traveling around the East Coast, stopping at the Quonset Hut in Louisville, KY, and the University of the Arts’ Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery. Young Country is currently at the Salisbury University Galleries until February 16. The show returns to the DCCA in September.
