Painter Jon Fox’s New, Existential Explorations

by Andy SmithPosted on

Jon Fox’s works are overflowing with varied influences and motifs, packed with explorations of identity and contemporary pressures. The existential quality of these acrylic and oil paintings extends out from these otherworldly characters and into the viewer. The artist says that “if you go far enough inside yourself as an individual, you reach a universal space that we all share and are connected to.” Fox was last mentioned on here.

“A childhood in the 80s, initially attracted him by American and Japanese cartoons, comics and electronic games, as much only by the hip hop and graffiti style that accompany it,” a statement from the Celal M13 gallery. “Originally interested in narrating and drawing stories, Fox juggles narrative and pictorial composition to produce mental landscapes, inhabited by characters and scenes full of wild energy or abounding with details.”
