Kris Cox at Ellins/Elkins (49 Geary)
Cox combines squares and rectangles with text on nicely textured canvas. The work is pleasant but lacks (in my opinion) much of an emotional charge. Of course, that may not be his intent. As they say, YMMV. Of course the gallery has a roster of good artists that they represent and have always, in my experience, been willing to show you works that are not on display. I particularly love Pia Stern and have had "private" viewings of her works from the back room but there are many others to chose from.
