Deirdre Fox puts physical objects to abstract use in visual poems. She has been working closely with scavenged materials, found objects, and regenerated patterns to create site-responsive installations.
Fox’s receptive and fluid approach to materials and space is like a form of visual poetry. “I turn trash into visual poems, making work that appears disposable, but is not. My drawing materials are disposable plastic bags, bottles, scraps, and other detritus. I fold, crochet, knit, weave, and assemble these materials to be points, lines, and volumes held together by the site and light in which they are situated.”
