Belinda Fox is an acclaimed printmaker, painter and ceramist. Her intricate imagery, which draws on both the abstract and representational, considers life’s opposing forces: hope and doubt, the static and in flux, beauty and decay, and creation and destruction.

In ‘Absent Friend’, Fox composes a feeling in three parts. First a blackened peony, then a flower bleached to white and finally, a rose-hued pattern, as ornamental as lace. The artist’s unusual composition, use of space and subdued colour palette recall the feeling of longing. When we miss someone, they are at once with us and achingly apart, present yet ungraspable.

Fox’s interest lies in what is endemic to the human condition. Having lived in Melbourne, Singapore and The Netherlands, she recognises acutely the pang of absence. Fox has also won numerous awards, including the Paul Guest Drawing Prize, Burnie Prize and Silk Cut award. She represented in many public collections nationally and internationally, and in 2015, was the subject of a monograph.

‘Absent Friend’ is an emotionally triumph rendered by a virtuosic printmaker. One must see it in the flesh to behold its symphony of printing techniques: etching, spitbite, embossing, aquatint and relief. For admirers of printmaking, contemporary art or those away from a loved one, take solace in this ‘Absent Friend’.
