About

(72"x144" acrylic on canvas) This large scale painting by New York artist, Peter Fox is created with flowing lines of vibrant colors of in veins of blues, blacks, reds, yellows on a white ground that create active optical mixtures of greens, violets and orange. This is an impressive example of Fox's signature style of drip painting, at 12 feet long, this makes an excellent statement piece. (signed on reverse by the artist) Referencing formal systems of Abstract Painting, this painting explores the language of relational color, as articulated through layered processes. The linear abstract composition is developed through variance and repetition, and evolves with the allowance of chance. This painting expands on the concept of ‘line’, defined by color relationships; as each movement is recorded on the surface of the painting, the poured paint is transformed into a drawing device. The fluid lines of paint transmit veins of parallel color, which develop into abstracted forms, evoking aspects of surrealist figuration. In paintings ranging from abstract to figurative, Peter Fox addresses the nature of representation and the history of art, referencing movements such as surrealism, pop art, and abstract expressionism. Peter Fox is best known for his drip paintings, which he makes by dropping multicolored globs of paint onto tilted canvases to create tactile, brightly colored surfaces that read as a cross between op art and abstract expressionist compositions. Speaking of his process, Fox has said: “Through observation and repetition, I gain a degree of control over the accidents I encourage.” In his "Process" series Peter Fox creates directed forms through composed accident, creating a visual structure that accumulates on the surface of each painting, developing a textural world of color that is drenched in abstraction. Peter Fox’s work has been exhibited throughout the US and internationally, in numerous gallery, institutional, and museum contexts. His work has been featured in The Brooklyn Rail, Salon, Hyperallergic, The Washington Post, Artnet, ArtNotes, Segno and TimeOut Roma, among other publications. He received his MFA in painting from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia/Rome and lives and works in New York.
