Jane Fox MA RCA, MRSS
The experimental sculpture practice of Jane Fox is an exploration of ideas, process, materials and form. Investigations into mystery are the presiding forces within the work – what lies beneath, inside invisible spaces; hidden activities and processes we can intuit or glimpse at.
Fox started to make sculpture with plaster in 1995, and the plaster has often been combined with re-cycled and found objects; and with film, performance and theatre.
In recent years the use of conventional materials to make sculpture has been questioned by Fox. Today Fox aims to use more ‘waste-treasure’; and to cultivate sustainable bio-materials. Fox has been growing food since 2005 and is a keen fermenter making a variety of organic probiotics. In 2022 Fox is experimenting further with bacterial cultures and mycelium to explore possibilities for the development of sculptural materials and form.

Between 2011 – 2018 Fox wrote and produced musical theatre and opera for Asking4It Productions – a theatre company founded by Fox to commission experimental performances and musical scores. These works explore issues of human rights and politics.
