Clay on Main will exhibit over 40 new paintings by Marilyn Fox this spring. The public is invited to the opening on Sunday March 25 from 4-6pm, and the show will be up until April 29. Her abstract, gestural works evoke a sense of harmony in the midst of change.
Fox’s mark-making begins as a kind of speech or writing; she explains, “I begin by painting gestural marks that are like the symbols used in writing. I obliterate those marks, add to them, scrape them off, and add to them. It’s like a dance, in a way.” This confluence of language, visual art, and dance is something that is apparent in her vibrant, flowing oil paintings.
