Mo Fox Solo Exhibition
Opening night - Thursday the 6th of September
6pm - 8pm
Objects are never just artefacts. They’ve been conceived and created for a purpose, used, appreciated, taken for granted, cherished, abused and often discarded. They are alive with experience. And they have stories to tell.
The paintings I do tend to be portraits, regardless of subject. I’m curious about their texture and character, and the layers and layers that each reveals as you look deeper. The essence of the thing — the brashness of the brush, the screwiness of this screw. And I’m curious about their history. The way they reflect the people they’ve lived with.
Most of my work is a mixed media hybrid of approaches and materials — like most of the strategy work I do. A lot of collage, a lot of drawing, a lot of transparent layers, and a lot of colour. Even the book I published is a hybrid of strategy, philosophy, collage and design. The art I make is central to the way I think and see the world and is what fuels the work I do.
Mo Fox is a Sydney based artist who lives on the northern beaches with her charismatic kelpie. When not playing in the studio or making her next book, she runs a creative strategy consultancy that uses art processes and principles to help organisations think differently about the messy problems they are swimming in. Because in the end, it’s all a creative process.
