This abstract work on paper shows John Fox’s lifelong interweaving of painting and drawing. Both his abstract and representational paintings began by drawing on the canvas.  Here his almost airborne charcoal shapes slip and slide over colliding layers of paint. The different gestures and sensations of paint and charcoal give his tonal colour its perfect pitch.
