Deirdre Fox puts physical objects to abstract use in visual poems, working closely with scavenged materials, found objects and regenerated patterns to create site-responsive installations. Her constructions, made with disposable plastic detritus, query paradigms of built-in obsolescence and accumulated waste. She has exhibited at FlexSpace Riverside Art Center, Adds Donna, Hyde Park Art Center, Betty Rymer Gallery, Evanston Art Center, the Museum of Shenandoah Valley, Koehnline Museum of Art Gallery and the Swedish American Museum, among other venues. She has been awarded grants from the City of Chicago/Illinois Arts Counsel and was included in New American Paintings Midwest Edition in 2012 and as featured artist for Chicago Artists Month in 2008. Her work has been curated into White Columns Artists Registry and The Drawing Center Viewing Program. Residencies include Ragdale Foundation, the Center for Books and Paper Arts, the Chicago Open Studios Program, and the Cliff Dwellers Club. Public collections include the Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection and the Center for Books and Paper Arts. She received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her BS in Materials Science & Engineering from Northwestern University. Deirdre maintains her studio at Mana Contemporary Chicago.
