Opening at P.P.O.W. in late October, Judy Fox will be showing “Snow White and the Seven Sins”. Playing on the classic Disney storyline Fox uses Pride, Envy, Anger, Avarice, Sloth, Gluttony and Lust as surreal objects to surround a beautiful nude adolescent girl who is seemingly unconscious. Known for her sculptures of children rendered with refinement; exploration of the child’s body in life-size naturalistically-painted clay, the artist explores contemporary sociological issues by creating vulnerable, naked and exposed individuals. Fox received her Masters from the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU and has received two NEA grants, and an award from the “Anonymous Was a Woman” foundation. She is a fellow of Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony, and is a 2006 fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. The P.P.O.W gallery in NYC and Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris both currently represent Fox.
