When I met Carol Fox almost a decade ago I was taken by her worldviews. She has this childlike wonder that constantly gathers shapes and ideas of beauty and blatantly denies that which is full of hate or anger. Some might call it naiveté but Carol wrapped herself in a ‘Joseph Coat’ of colors, stars and shapes of animals to show us that anything else will lead us array in a confusing world – a world that will always seek answers but that will never find it.
Needless to say this is exactly how her paintings come across. A jumbled world full of color that is compartmentalize in heavens and oceans. All her paintings are large-scale unstretched canvases worked and reworked, glued and collage to become hanging tapestries of color. Originally trained as an Art Therapist she is influenced by Psychology (especially Jung), Quantum Physics and the Spiritual world of Native Americans.
In the above work “When the stars come out” she depicts the mechanics of a cloud machine. A bright day is surrounded by night and at the center are clouds being manufactured and transported on a conveyor belt to be launched into the sky.
