Pius Fox

Fox’s art moves between painting and drawing. His work is always in the area of tension between form and content, representational and abstract. Often appears more or less figuratively recognizable spatial situations, vistas such as through doors or windows, or generally architectural elements. Again and again, however, human figures or “still lifes” are mixed into his work – a small mirror on the wall, a few books, a staircase or a table. Figuration, abstraction and imagination mix in his work and together form their own cosmos. One notices in his work how enthusiastically Fox explores the history of painting and fine art in general and makes it useful for himself. The whole range of art history seems to be an ever new and varied source of inspiration for Fox. It is particularly refreshing that, despite all the historical echoes and his young age, he has very consistently developed his astonishingly confident and independent signature.
