The experimental and socially engaged practice of Jane Fox is an exploration of ideas, materials, process and form. Discovery, playfulness, vitality and humour remains constant throughout the practice. The pieces can be theatrical installations using a combination of traditional, found objects and recycled materials.
In 1995 Fox started to make sculpture with plaster. Plaster continues to be a primary choice understanding there is more to research and discover with this material. Often it is combined with other materials or forms part of sculptural installations for performance.
The projects are frequently informed by aspects of public health, nursing, midwifery and psychology. Predominant interests are linked to healing, disease prevention and transformation in some way.
Between 2011 – 2018 Fox explored writing and producing musical theatre and opera for Asking4It Productions. Asking4It Productions is a theatre company founded by Fox specifically for the commissioning of innovative and experimental performative works and musical scores. These works have a political emphasis and explore issues of human rights.
