Jane Fox MA RCA, MRSS – Sculptor
Explorations into mystery are the presiding forces within the work – what lies beneath, inside invisible spaces; hidden activities and processes we intuit or glimpse at. The use of colour is an odd juxtaposition: an over-exposure and perhaps a bringing-out into the light.
In 1995 Fox started to make sculpture with plaster and often combined this traditional material with re-cycled and found objects. Today she is researching and growing bio-ecological materials for sculpture.
Since 2005 she has been growing food and fermenting a variety of organic probiotics. More recently Fox began experimenting further with probiotic cultures, SCOBY microbial cellulose and mycelium to test the possibilities for sculpture and other applications.

Between 2011 – 2018 Fox wrote the librettos 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.
