Presenting Brandi Fox’s photography and mixed media. This work is about the journey through a broken world to what lies beyond.
This body of work is an exploration of how flora can stand in for humans or human institutions and wrestling with the sadness of broken bodies in our broken world. It is a contemplation of fire and its aftermath. On the other side of fire sometimes you find ash but sometimes you find better things. This work is a contemplation of the ways that maps tell a story of place, a consideration of the ways that precious metal holds meanings apart from what the periodic table says about them, and an embodiment of the hope that when beauty mingles with truth and justice we can see a better way toward joy and wholeness.
Brandi Voigt Fox is a Southern artist who earned her BA in Studio Arts from Winthrop University, Rock Hill, South Carolina in 2008. She has a deep and prolonged interest in the ways that flowers and vegetation can stand in for humans and human institutions. This interest is often explored by blending studio photography with mixed media techniques.
