Nancy Fox

As an artist I am interested in the intrinsic design of things, both natural and human-made, which I explore through both print media and drawing.

I use a formal, visual language (shape, line, colour, surface) derived from things that I encounter in the world such as speeding curves of highway off/on ramps, the aged, patinated colour of axe heads, or the angular and varied forms of rocks. These things are considered and studied, singling out what is formally essential, then materially remade with drawing and printmaking using their unique material qualities. The works highlight both simplicity and beauty of form.
