In paintings ranging from abstract to figurative, Peter Fox addresses the nature of representation and the history of art, referencing movements such as surrealism, pop art, and abstract expressionism. He works in series, using acrylic and oil paints on canvas or paper. In a nod to surrealism, Fox once produced a suite of 10 thousand automatic drawings. His earlier works are more representational than his later ones, and feature images of Bart Simpson and Marilyn Monroe. Among his recent works are drip paintings, which he makes by dropping multicolored globs of paint onto tilted canvases to create tactile, brightly colored surfaces that read as a cross between op art and abstract expressionist compositions. Speaking of his process, Fox has said: “Through observation and repetition, I gain a degree of control over the accidents I encourage.”
