By layering acrylic paint in a series of invented applicators, from which the paint drips onto an inclined surface, Peter Fox allows chance and fluid dynamics to shape both the process and the outcome of his abstract paintings. At first glance, the heavily textured paintings take on the appearance of something beyond paint. Variously compared to glazed porcelain, marbled paper, cake frosting, or even flattened rubber balloons, they speak to us on an evocative visual level.
Peter Fox earned an MFA degree from Tyler School of Art, studying in Philadelphia and Rome. Since then, he has shown extensively throughout the United States and received many positive critical reviews. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
