Altera Collective: Press Release

Safe Hands shows a selection of paintings made over 18 months both locally in South East London and during a year-long residency in Yangon, Myanmar.

In works like ‘Sonic Tonic’ and ‘Safe Hands’, the sculptural welded elements both interact with and help to contextualise the paintings. In this current body of works, the industrial practice of metalwork is paralleled through the process of repetitive mark making. Safe Hands refers to the re-occurring theme of sign language within Fox’s work. Visuals of hand gestures are repeated throughout and invite the audience to interpret the various possibilities and meanings of language and expression.
