Preview: Jon Fox’s “If You Don’t Object Then You Must Agree” at White Walls Gallery

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Jon Fox’s paintings (featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 30) unfurl epic battles where human characters appear minuscule and inconsequential amid the spirits and deities running amuck in his otherworldly dimension. Fox’s scenes are large and sprawling, with multiple narratives occurring simultaneously. The UK-based artist’s new work will debut at his next solo show, “If You Don’t Object Then You Must Agree,” opening at White Walls Gallery in San Francisco on January 31.

Fox explained in an email to Hi-Fructose that the conflicts in his paintings visualize some of his own inner struggles. By laying them out on canvas, he is able to better process his thoughts and feelings. “The themes in my work work are generally from insights into my own being, they are all coming from a process of introspection,” he said. “If I can try to look at it in a detached way, to try and view it as a story and somehow lay it out as a narrative in a painting from my own perspective, hopefully I can learn from it.”
