The work of Chris Fox interrogates the conceptual and material boundaries between art and architecture, altering sites through installation, object and drawing.
Each experience of Fox’s work is relative to the technical and conceptual grammar of architecture and construction. Sculptural works, playfully mimic, distort and disrupt their environment, using materials such as cabling and cars, as well as various building material with a para-function. His work embraces a tension that forces us to recalibrate our perception of the artworks notional form, function, environment and our spatial relationship within it.
Fox has completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts and a Bachelor of Architecture both with Honours, and is currently completing a Master of Fine Arts. He is a lecturer at the University of Sydney in Art Processes and Architecture, and has been the recipient of many awards, grants and residencies. Fox has exhibited in numerous solo, group and collaborative exhibitions in Australia, the USA and Europe, with an established sculptural practice of large scale public and private commissioned artworks.
