South African born artist Nick Fox is most well-known for his seductive tondos, delicate drawings and intricate objet d’art. Informed by eclectic high and low art reference points, Fox explores personal symbols and cultural meanings of longing, seduction, desire and loss.
This comprehensive volume is dedicated to Fox’s new and highly personal body of work Nightsong, produced between 2009 and 2012. Musing upon the spiritual panacea of moonlight, Nightsong explores the physical and emotional instability and the bittersweet intensification of longing that comes as a result of rejection and loss.
Glass sculptures, video installations, photography, and sound work are presented alongside new paintings, drawings and cyanotype prints, revealing Fox’s visual musings on intimate revelations; the collective longing that connects humanity.
Extensively illustrated and elegantly echoed through the book design, this volume is published following the touring exhibition of this series at Hå gamle prestegard, Norway (2011) and Vane, Newcastle (24 November 2012 – 2 February 2013).
