“There is a terrible beauty in this blackness: one material on the edge of becoming another…” Edmund De Waal
Fusing together profoundly personal and global concerns, Belinda Fox’s new series lays bare the paradoxes endemic to contemporary human experience. Working in painting, drawing, glass, sculpture, printmaking and collaboration, Fox examines the volatility of our era, excavating the iridescent beauty that flickers below the shadowy surface of conflict and despair. Currently based in The Hague, Fox presents us with a series in which beauty is a gateway into dense conceptual terrain patchworked with blackness and light. For her, the show is an ‘antidote’ to our polarised epoch; abridge connecting us through a shared – albeit almost forgotten – humanity. – Elli Walsh
Fox will present new paintings, drawings, prints, glass and sculptural cabinets made in collaboration with Wilfred Kalf for her latest solo exhibition with Arthouse Gallery.
