Biographical details

Chris Fox is a Lecturer at the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning where he currently co-ordinates first year architecture and facilitates the art-processes core units in the architecture faculty. Fox works with architecture students involving them in similar cross-disciplinary practices that Fox utilises in his own work, looking to equip students with the conceptual and technical skills required to creatively explore dynamic transactions between art and architecture. Fox is an established sculptor whose practice investigates the extension of site through notional programmed structures. Large, architecturally scaled interventions and sculptural projects test the boundaries of the built form through materials and constructions that speak of a potential paralleling function, of a parallel and poetic potentiality beside a more conventional functionalism.

Fox designs, builds, engineers, fabricates and installs works, often engaging and leading teams of engineers, builders, artisans and other specialist. Extensive experience in utilising numerous materials for his sculptural projects, as well as working in the architecture and construction industries, means that Fox has a wealth of construction, material and artistic knowledge. Fox also works at smaller scales of practice, including: models, drawings and sculptures which he exhibits extensively. Fox’s exhibitions and commissions have taken place both locally and internationally. Commissioned projects include Convergence in 2011 for the lobby and atrium of Global Switch Data Centre in Paris, Transmission recently completed in 2014 for the Corso North Lakes Library near Brisbane and Drift in 2013 for the Commonwealth Parliamentary Offices at 1 Bligh Street, Sydney. Fox is currently represented by Timothy Yarger Fine Art in Beverly Hills California, and is on the Board of Artspace Sydney.
