The underpinning research is Nick Fox’s broad body of work Phantasieblume, exploring longing, loss and desire, conducted in his studio since 2007 and further supported during a Research and development Residency at the National Glass centre, Sunderland in 2009 and 2010. Subversive narratives of romantic idealisation, cultural artefact and coded articulations of desire specifically inform the research. Further to these interests, Fox has continued to developed innovative painting processes which He creates his work by crafting layers of acrylic paint on glass, which is then intricately cut, creating elaborate objects that resemble the preciousness of lace The Phantasieblume research project was developed as a series of Solo Presentations containing a selection of mirrored paintings, drawings and craft objects. Another area of interest for Fox is the exploration of contemporary and historical sub-cultural and floriographic languages as a means of visualising hidden of forbidden pleasures. Coinciding with his exhibition Phantasieblume at Vane Gallery Newcastle, a-n magazine, a leading monthly art periodical featured his work and innovative painting process on the front cover, including a feature article on page 3.
