Label TextAfter participating in funeral arrrangements for family members, Cox became interested in the decor of funeral homes, and how these environments function within the grieving process. The artist conducted research to not only capture these unique spaces but also delve into how notions of class and social expectation all play a role in how such places come to look and feel. This photograph is from Cox's "Mors Scena" series. Sources: NEWS, Oct Nov Dec 2020 and NEWS Mat Jun Jul Aug 2021
