Vaux was born in Swindon, and attended the local School of Art before entering the Slade School. He has exhibited widely in the United Kingdom and abroad. He has also taught art, becoming principal lecturer in painting at the Central School in 1973. This wall mounted relief is constructed from aluminium tubing painted with cellulose, together with wood battens painted with acrylic paint. It is designed to be viewed from different angles. The work explores scale, colour, light and the relationship between work and spectator.
