ANT FOX: Ant (Anthony) Fox was born in Lobethal SA in 1951. He worked and studied in plant sciences at the Adelaide University for half his working life, and was a Lutheran pastor for the other half. He retired at the end of 2016 and lives in the Adelaide Hills. Ant has been a, mostly self-taught, ‘part time artist’ since the 1970s, working mainly in oils. He has been a participant in several exhibitions in the Hills and the Barossa. His many trips into the arid outback as well as into the country areas of South Australia, Victoria, and New South Wales have made him familiar with our Australian landforms and colours. He cites the art of Fred Williams, Arthur Boyd, John Olsen, and Clifton Pugh as being major influences on his artistic thoughts, but does not pretend to be worthy to be in their company. AMELIA FOX: Amelia Fox (Abwfox) is a South Australian emerging artist, having Completed her Bachelor of Contempory Arts at the University of South Australia last year. She works predominantly with threads of all kinds, loving the tactile nature. Most of her inspirations start from her childhood home, from her Botanist parents - photographer and painter father, and fabric artist mother. Living at a time of film cameras, she also has a love of photography, black and white, polaroid, and now the freedom of candidly snapping every situation using digital formats. In this collection, Abstracted Landscapes, she uses a combination of focusing on colour and texture, sometimes combining the mediums to get a unique perspective of a simple landscape. Using threads, she wraps and weaves the colours and textures together to create her abstracted landscape panels. Starting with a photo, she manipulates the image in various ways by computer, printing onto fabric and using nature itself, sometimes repeating this process multiple times. This then creates surprise and unknown outcomes, just like the Australian landscape itself. JOY FOX: Joy Fox grew up in the Adelaide suburb of Cowandilla. She was trained in Botany and Horticulture at Adelaide Botanic Gardens, and later worked in biology and botany at Adelaide University. Joy has always had a keen interest in arts and crafts of all kinds. She expresses her love of form and colour in colourful patchwork fabric art, and in jewellery made from plastic, wood, and metal buttons. These works have been much admired both in South Australia and Victoria.
