Zox received his education at Oklahoma University and Drake University. He studied with George Grosz at the Des Moines Art Center. He has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship and has received grants from the National Council of the Arts and the Ester and Adolph Gottlieb Foundation. He has been an Artist-in Residence at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, Dartmouth College, and Yale University.
A native of Des Moines now living in Connecticut, Zox is an abstract artist who utilizes color and space in a unique way. He utilizes color combinations with references to nature, music, or the city that surrounds him. But often there is a black section that is placed in the work for the sake of the painting's aesthetic alone. The work ranges from the harmonious to the unexpected. All the work is done with a tremendous amount of technical control.
