Curated by Leonardo Feroleto of Six Summit Gallery.

Franz Fox’s work, Instinctual Drift, has been selected for this event.
This piece is in the new genre of art that Franz has created and calls Neoplasticity. Neoplasticity is in the movement of psychic automatism, which gives priority to the process, emphasizing impulse over premeditated composition. This involves the introduction of a main figural element as subject matter and fine detail added with pen and ink, creating a sense of shadow and movement, with hidden figures and symbols. The birth of Neoplasticity started with the blank canvas that was on his easel at the time of his first wife’s sudden death. He used this canvas to record my fracturous thoughts and experiences following her death. Instinctual Drift, by Franz Fox, is a mixed media (acrylic and ink) on 48 x 60 gallery wrapped canvas. This painting is dedicated to the Spanish painters, mainly Salvador Dali, who is depicted near the center of the painting, who are part of Fox’s Spanish heritage and who have significantly impacted his body of work through his studies in Malaga, Spain.
