The Sculptures of Carson Fox

View all 5 Photos

A mesmerizing series that explores nature and the passage of time.

“Nothing is more perplexing, complex, and extraordinary than nature,” says artist Carson Fox. Her work beautifully captures this view. And while they decipher various facets of nature, Fox’s artworks are as fascinating as the subject they explore. An explosion of color and organic forms, the sculptures of Carson Fox captivate with their distinctive character. Beyond their often playfulness and eye-catching textures, the sculptures hold the kernel of nuanced discussions about nature and time.

For example, some artworks use flowers as a source of inspiration. These sculptures explore both the flowers’ vibrancy and their symbolism as they relate to human rituals. Elsewhere, grass becomes the symbol of human longing. In other sculptures, the artist turns to trees and corals to delve into the concept of time and continuance.

“I am interested in beauty, but I mistrust it. Instead, I look for beauty that exists in the tension between nature and artifice, the awe of visual spectacle, and humanity’s desire to bridle nature and time,” explains the artist. While Carson Fox’s latest sculptures have a slightly more abstract appearance, the fascination with nature, history, and time remains as a connecting thread throughout her artworks. The artist uses resin to create her sculptural work, pairing bold colors with abstract organic shapes in objects that are mesmerizing and imaginative. Photographs© Carson Fox.
