Artist Reception: September 12, 5:30 – 7:30pm
Rittenhouse 1715: A Boutique Hotel, 1715 Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia, PA 19103
PHILADELPHIA—InLiquid is proud to present "Rendering Home", works by InLiquid artist member Julia Fox, which is the first solo exhibition of a new partnership with Rittenhouse 1715: A Boutique Hotel. The works in Rendering Home are about the artist’s reinvigoration of her art practice, as well as a rediscovery of the concept of “home” after feeling as though she lost sense of the concept altogether. For these works, Julia Fox blurs the lines between painting and sculpture while leaning on her subconscious in their inception. Each piece acts as a memory, snapshot, or sensation, describing urbanity as a place of comfort despite absurdities. Having physically stemmed from the shredded remnants of two former paintings by Fox, these works tell a story of picking up the pieces, of going back in order to go forward.

Fox has recently shown at The AUTOMAT and Urban Gallery & Books in Philadelphia, PA, and is a founding member of Leyline, an artist collective.
