Franz Fox has created a new genre of paintings that he calls Neoplasticity.
Neoplasticity is in the movement of psychic automatism, which gives priority to the process, emphasizing impulse over premeditated composition. This involves the introduction of a main figural element as subject matter and fine detail added with pen and ink, creating a sense of shadow and movement, with hidden figures and symbols.
Franz works as a professional artist from his home studio in Lancaster County, PA.
Franz Fox was born on the island of Cuba under the Batista Regime. After the Castro government came into power, several uprisings resulted in immediate family members being jailed for defiance of the communist government. Soon thereafter, Fox’s family migrated to the US, just before the Cuban missile crisis.
During his travels to England, France, Italy, Spain, and Holland, Franz perfected his art through his studies of landscape and architecture. He studied painting in Paris, France and Malaga, Spain. His formal education is in architecture which gives him a unique mastery of perspective and spatiality.
Franz’s painting, The Garden Past, was chosen by juror Paul Resika, for New York City’s First Street Gallery National Juried Exhibition, June 2011. Franz has had representation at the Agora Gallery in Chelsea in New York City. He has also been represented by the 2nd Floor Gallery in Mechanicsburg, PA and the Harrisburg Art Association Gallery in Harrisburg, PA. Franz participated in the 2013 New York Art Expo and his work was featured in the October 2013 edition of American Art Collector magazine. In 2014 Franz was accepted for representation at the 3rd Street Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. He is also represented by Six Summit Gallery in Ivoryton, CT and New York City, and is a studio artist at Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ as well as CALC in Carlisle, PA. Franz is currently published by “Art & Creative Marketing” located in the Washington D.C. Metro area. Franz was juried into membership with the Oil Painters of America in 2015. His painting Black and White was recently purchased by Tryba Architects for permanent placement at Aimco’s property Park Towne Place in Philadelphia.
