On July 2nd I got to talk to artist Carson Fox as her show was being installed at Philadelphia's Stanek Gallery. I found her to be a scintillating raconteur. Carson is not one of those artists who get their single big idea when young and never deviate from it for the rest of their career.

American artist Carson Fox’s work relies heavily on the imprint that individual experience has on the artist, and centers on the production of sculpture, installation, printmaking and artist books.

Carson Fox received her master of fine arts from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, her BFA from University of Pennsylvania, and a four-year studio certificate from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.   Her work can be found in the permanent collections of The Museum of Arts and Design, The Royal Museum of Belgium, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Museum among others.  To date, she has participated in over 25 solo and 100 group exhibitions including shows at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, The New Britain Museum of American Art, New Britain, Connecticut, the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, Boulder, Colorado, and the Jersey City Museum, Jersey City, NJ.  Fox has created multiple permanent installations of artwork in public and corporate venues, including with the NYC Metropolitan Transportation Authority, University of Arkansas and Boston University.  Grants include awards from the University of Rhode Island, the New Jersey Council on the Arts and  the Barbara Deming Memorial Fund.  Her work has been written about in multiple newspapers and periodicals including the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post and the New Yorker magazine. 

Carson Fox is represented by Linda Warren Projects in Chicago, IL and Stanek Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. 

Fox lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
