Featuring a new suite of paintings, sculptures, prints and ceramics, 'Balancing the World' represents Fox’s cultural and
conceptual dialogue with her broader surrounds in Asia. Picturing a series of precarious forms, the works extend the artist’s
interrogation of the tenuous balancing act faced by a global society mounted on an insatiable thirst for ‘progress’, looking
specifically at what is being sacrificed in the stride of human advancement. In Fox’s paintings and prints, extinct and
endangered bird species embody the environmental deterioration endemic to our culture of consumption, while the motif of
the peony flower - a traditional Chinese symbol for prosperity and power - hints at how these virtues can both build and destroy
community. Created in collaboration with renowned Singaporean artist Jason Lim, Fox’s new series of intricately engraved
ceramics linger on the line between creation and collapse, prompting us to consider the delicate balance of life that defines
the natural world.
