Moosey London // August 31, 2023 – September 24, 2023
Moosey Hoxton is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by Charlotte Fox. Working predominantly with oil, Charlotte’s work playfully explores experiences of repulsion and desire through the lens of fantasy and fragmented or fictionalised self-narrative. Her process uses several visual references such as personal photography, vintage porn and old films and cartoons, which are later digitally collaged together before being painted in oil.
“Taking a voyeuristic approach to understanding one’s own internal fantasy world and history of what compels or repels them- the paintings are pieces of storytelling but not the full
story, and perhaps not even a true story. Through hiding or concealing the ‘rest’ of the story there is a transference or even an avoidance in investigating what attracts and what repulses.
The subjects of these works often take the forms of warped or bent bodies; pieces of the human form, often in moments of vulnerability or engaging in sexual exploration, as well as semi-anthropomorphised animals and scenes of interior spaces. The subjects reveal themselves as glimpses detached from any anchored setting or substantial landscape. I like to think of them as pockets of lost memories or false dreams that can’t or won’t be fully remembered.”
Charlotte Fox (b.1994) received her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2016). She currently lives and works in New York. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
