    About The Work

    This painting is created in Peter Fox's signature style of drip painting. Exuberant colors of rich red , black, blue, yellow and orange flow in multilayered arcs and parallel colors in this exhilarating and active painting. The optical fusion of the colors creates a beautiful array of orange, violet and green tones, with a engaging depth and movement. Peter Fox's process builds the paint in a thick impasto and leaves visible the base canvas to create an active visual abstract depth. This painting is created through a multilayered pouring and drip process of applying paint to the canvas surface. There is an amazing surface quality to this piece that is defined by the depth of the paint layers. Peter Fox's unique style of painting references visual qualities found in op art and abstract expressionist compositions which are immensely rich in color and texture. In his "Process" series Peter Fox creates directed forms through composed accident, creating a visual structure that accumulates on the surface of each painting, developing a textural world of color that is drenched in abstraction.
