Artist Ginny Fox has been making art in Yonkers, NY for more than 15 years in a studio located just over the city line. The building was a carpet mill at the turn of the century, and like many Hudson River mills, remained abandoned for some time. It was eventually converted to studios for artists and light industry.

"It has many quirks that old buildings tend to have, but I love my space. It is large, has northern light, and faces the hills of Westchester in the distance, and parking lots for buses and trucks closer in, thus feeding my attraction to both nature and industry. It has very high ceilings and one long brick wall."

"My work is a merging of textures and colors evoking both organic and fabricated elements. I am equally inspired by patterns in nature and those in architecture, textiles, and manufactured objects. Layers of time evident in random markings on a stone, light raked across water, the open weave of moss-covered earth, all inform the work, and result in a unique amalgamation."


"My work tends to straddle the line between painting and sculpture, and I like to play with that idea in my studio: I move the work around and juxtapose old/new pieces both hanging and standing on cubes, something I don’t usually do in a formal installation; it gives me a different perspective."

The clayboard panels have very smooth surfaces, and oftentimes the painted pattern wraps the edges of that board that is approximately 1-2 inches thick.
