Connie Fox is an abstract painter who was born in Colorado and a student during World War II. She was a peer of Elaine DeKooning. Her various travels around the world have meandered into her paintings, and have inhabited her canvases. Many of Connie’s pieces are inspired by avant-garde films. The ambiguity of the films lead to the ricochet between the pure abstraction and unexpected figuration found in her paintings.
Works by Connie Fox are in several museums and collections. Her art has been covered by important writers and critics, and in 2013 she received a Purchase Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. She currently resides in East Hampton, where she continues to work and create.
