Franz Fox perfected his art through his studies of landscape and architecture during his travels to England, France, Italy, Spain and Holland. He studied painting in Paris, France and Malaga, Spain. Fox’s formal education in architecture gives him a unique mastery of perspective and spatiality.
Fox’s paintings focus on abstraction and a new body of work he has been perfecting over his lifetime, which he coined “Neoplasticity”. Fox explains it by saying, “It is in the movement of psychic automatism, which gives priority to the process, emphasizing impulse over premeditated composition. This involves the introduction of a main figural element as subject matter, painted with oils or acrylics, and fine detail added with pen and ink, creating a sense of shadow and movement, with hidden figures and symbols. ” His work is inspired by expression, imagination and feeling and is not a product of recreated reality.
