Hannah Fox captures the essence of the natural world in a dynamic and multifaceted manner, aiming to mirror the unpredictable contours found in nature. Central to her artistic inquiry is the representation of mass and void, drawing inspiration from the landscape - where a cliff top meets the sea, or a rock emerges high from the ground. The canvas’ shifting shapes and perimeters mimic the organic irregularities found in the environment, evoking a sense of dynamism and fluidity within the artwork.

Fox plays with positive and negative spatial concepts, utilizing the cut-outs or voids to create dynamic visual compositions.
The interplay between these elements adds depth and intrigue to the artwork, inviting viewers to ponder the relationship between form and emptiness, presence and absence.

Her non-representational paintwork, of varying opaqueness, fractures the surface and creates a push-and-pull tension that adds depth and complexity to the composition. Each brushstroke becomes a deliberate exploration of the canvas’ contours and dimensions, shaping the evolution of the artwork in unexpected ways.

Fox attributes her colour palette to the twilight hues of the Australian bush, where light softens, merging colours and blurring boundaries. Shadows in shades of aubergine contrast with the muted tones of grey-green leaves and the ethereal white of ghost gums. Pops of flowering natives add vibrant bursts of pinky-red, infusing the landscape with a captivating energy.

This exhibition symbolizes a bold leap into abstract realms, where the canvas itself becomes a collaborator in the artistic dialogue.

Please join us for a drink to celebrate the opening of PERIMETER on Friday 31 May (6–8PM)
