Mark Fox Not in this Fool's House
New York-based artist Mark Fox is best known for his two- and three-dimensional assemblages made from thousands of meticulous drawings that he cuts out and reassembles to create new narratives and unexpected associations. However Fox works in a variety of media and his drawings, sculptures, videos, and installations are united by his methodical process, use of iconography, and exploration of the relationship between destruction and construction. Mark Fox has had solo exhibitions at the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, Rice University Art Gallery, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art and the Fabric Workshop and Museum. His work has recently been acquired and exhibited by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Philadelphia Museum of Art and is also included in the collections of MoMA and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among other institutions.
