Peter FOX

Peter FOX
1952

Fox was born in Kettering, Northamptonshire. He studied for his BA (Hons) in Fine Art at the Falmouth School of Art from 1979 to 1982. By his own statement his work has been strongly influenced by primitive and non-western art.

He is a member of the Newlyn Society of Artists and shows his work with them and in venues in Cornwall and London.  He has also shown abroad in the USA and Italy.

The artist and his partner, Roselyne WILLIAMS, have initiated a contemporary 'primitive' gallery for exhibiting the works of fine artists who work primarily outside the mainstream art circles of West Cornwall.  Their REDWING GALLERY is a pop-up community interest company (not for profit) which has joined with the Hypatia Trust to provide exhibition spaces for artists over short periods of time together with workshop opportunities for pupils of all ages.
