Exhibition & Residency:
March 1 – May 31, 2010
Chris Fox combines the architectural and the artistic with his sculptures, interventions, hybrid objects, drawings and models. Skating a fine line between folly and practicality, the various projects devised by Fox draw from their own physical manifestation as sculptures and installations.
His formal training as an architect and visual artist is acutely visible in his projects, as he investigates biographical, historical and cultural narratives through large sculptural notional machines. These futuristic yet nostalgic machines or systems are configured using specific components and materials, often from a prior or existing use.
Chris Fox has exhibited nationally and internationally in over 40 exhibitions and has received a number of awards and scholarships. Fox has work held in collections in Australia and has been commissioned for a number of large-scale projects including private and public art commissions.
