Nick Fox: artist talk, Wednesday 14 December, 6-7pm



Nick Fox discusses his work with Dr Fiona Anderson, art historian at Newcastle University, on Wednesday 14 December, 6-7pm.

Foxs current solo exhibition, Half-light, brings together a body of work created by Fox over the last three years, including paintings, sculptures and cyanotype prints. His work is informed by an interest in myth and layered with literary references, in particular, the writings of Oscar Wilde and French novelist Joris-Karl Huysmans, giving rise to a keen sense both of the pleasures and the limits of double meanings in the construction of codes. The works function as a mirror to the artists emotional life, charting Foxs enduring motivations of longing, desire, seduction, love and loss. The exhibition will be open for viewing on the Wednesday evening until 8pm, and continues until Saturday 17 December 2016.

Dr Fiona Anderson is an art historian at Newcastle University. Her research is concerned with art and queer culture from the 1960s to the 1990s, with a particular focus on the HIV/AIDS crisis.
