Studied at the University of Oklahoma, Drake University and Des Moines Art Center under the mentorship of George Grosz, a figurative artist who nevertheless encouraged the young abstract painter. Zox's earliest works, completed in 1959-62, were painted collages consisting of painted pieces of paper stapled onto joined sheets of plywood. He began his "Rotation" series in 1963 using a standardized geometrical compositional schema as the basis for a series of paintings each different in color. By the mid-60s, his large geometric paintings were appearing at prestigious galleries. Zox maintained a studio on 20th Street that became a gathering place for artists, jazz musicians, bikers, and boxers. A large man, Zox occasionally sparred with visiting fighters. Later, he had a studio in East Hampton, where he liked to fish and was known to go fish spotting by helicopter.
