Marie Fox is a figurative oil painter whose work combines traditional western techniques and iconography with ancestral mythologies and mysticism to create a contemporary narrative. Based in Fredericton, New Brunswick, she has exhibited with several galleries in Atlantic Canada. In 2016, Fox was awarded the Studio Watch Emerging Artists Series and presented her exhibition, ‘Ascend’, at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Her current project, ‘Celestial Bodies’, was awarded a Creation Grant by artsnb and will debut as a solo exhibition in 2019 at Gallery on Queen. 'Celestial Bodies' will feature iconic Maritime landscapes and celestial skyscapes populated with figures that embody the earthly, the celestial, and the otherworldly.
