Pius Fox

*1983, Germany – Lives and works in Berlin

In his painting, the Berlin artist Pius Fox deals with the abstraction of reality. The mostly small-scale reduced works are created in a painting process in which layers are applied and partly sanded down again or scratched out until the right balance, the right moment of friction arises. Spaces dissolve into shapes and fragments and instead of clear colors Fox chooses a delicate, muted palette. Art historical references meet documentary material, such as photographs, the artist uses as sources.
