THE NEW BLACK, a Journey into the Pink

NEW PAINTING BY ARTIST DAVE FOX | A SOLO EXHIBIT

OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 11, 2010 7-11pm

“THE NEW BLACK, a Journey into the Pink” is the latest collection of works by Philadelphia artist, Dave Fox. On his most recent adventure in the visual arts, Fox pushes the limits of optical stimulation through the exploitation of colors and characters, of which most would never dare imagine. He takes us on a trip around the world, through time and space, from the bottom to the top, and back again, relentlessly breaking new bounds with old cliches. Through the latest technological advances in the use of flourescence discovered by Fox, he is able to bring new enlightenment to a dark world by taking the viewer out of the black and into the PINK…

Artist Bio | DAVE FOX

Somewhere around 1994-’95 after spending four years earning a bachelor of arts degree at one of any faceless universities, and then realizing that what he was seeking couldn’t be achieved through an institute of higher learning, Dave Fox took it upon himself to pursue the craft of tattooing. Already a quite un-accomplished painter, Fox realized he had to work relentlessly sketching, drawing, painting, and studying this permanently life-changing art form to achieve true reward in his newly chosen vocation. And years later, after losing lots of hair and going completely grey, someone seemed to care…

Drawing from the influences of heavy metal album artwork and very, very funny cartoons, Dave Fox creates an eclectic, contently-confused mix of scary monsters, pretty girls, twisted flowers, and disturbed animals that have been known to send the viewer home laughing or leaving cross-eyed with a feeling of pure meaninglessness. His artwork takes you on a journey through the depths of your psyche, bringing out the good times and the bad, the peaceful times and the horrid, and, most of all, the dumbest things you’ve ever done. But it’s all in good fun.

Aside from making art, Dave Fox likes to play guitar. If you lived next door to him, you might find yourself being woken up at 1am, two or three nights a week, to the sound of pointless, going-nowhere, self-indulgent 80’s metal style guitar solos. Feel lucky you don’t. He also enjoys snowboarding and bike riding, but doesn’t get RAD like he did when he was a kid. If he’s not amidst one of the aforementioned life changing events, chances are he’s hanging out with his cats, friends, and family.
