Acrylic on wood panel
30 x 40 x 2 inches
This minimalist, non-objective painting is the work of Ginny Fox, whose process is based on overlapping streaks of paint. Working with rags instead of brushes, Fox’s hand moves along parallel paths, emergent shades of sienna and ochre cascading gently towards the edges of the compositional plane. A vaporous texture characterizes the outer layers of the work, the interwoven strands of color offering glimpses at the painting’s earthy base and hinting at the artist’s gradual process.
The panel can be oriented vertically or horizontally and can be easily installed with just two nails.
My paintings merge the detailed textures and colors found in the natural world with the linear and geometric patterns visible in industrial and architectural structures. The interplay of these elements drives the work and provides a platform for constant change and narrative. By simultaneously layering and removing paint with rags instead of brushes, my hand is directly involved with the process. Each piece contains multiple panels that evoke a nuanced and evolving universe.
