BELINDA FOX Still/Life 29th September - 12th October 2016
The Cat Street Gallery is delighted to present the Australian artist Belinda Fox’s second solo show in Hong Kong ’STILL/LIFE’
Belinda Fox is a lyrical, abstract artist who explores the precarious balance in contemporary life between hope and doubt. Her paintings and works on paper reveal her search for balance and harmony in our contemporary world. Reflecting on and responding to the continual presence of conflict in our lives, Belinda’s work offers a breathing space to meditate on the beauty that surrounds us. Belinda utilises the expressive and unpredictable effects of her medium to create richly diverse surfaces, with the drips and washes of her paints adding to the transient nature of her subject matter. Her delicately rendered and layered works are imbued with quietness and seductive beauty, enticing the viewer to pause and reflect on Belinda’s offering for a better world. While mostly serene in effect, her recent works continue to harbour an underlying sense of endangered, fragile beauty.
Belinda has won numerous awards for her printmaking and drawing including the Paul Guest Drawing Prize, the Burnie Print Prize and the Silk Cut award for lino-cuts. Her work has been displayed at the National Gallery of Australia and in many national, regional and corporate collections.
