Connie Fox

Sammy’s Beach

March 21 - April 19, 2014

Danese/Corey is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition of work by Connie Fox. The exhibition consists of paintings and works on paper inspired by her decades’ long relationship with an isolated stretch of the East Hampton shore known locally as Sammy’s Beach. Beginning 30 years ago, Fox and her friend Elaine de Kooning regularly frequented this haven of light, land, sea and sky. She still begins each morning absorbing this tidal bay’s enduring spiritual and visual narrative. In her words, “the most significant thing I did at Sammy’s was just to be there. I walked, sat, looked. Most importantly, I swam.” (1) In the series, Fox achieves an eloquent balance between the reality of locale and its existential condition in an intimate, personal vocabulary – an environment filtered through the soul and sensibility of an abstract expressionist.

The mechanical fox made his way through Beach City, completely unaware where he was. With each step he took, his mechanical toes clicked against the ground (due to the lower half of his legs being deteriorated). His ears twitched as if he was trying to pick up any sounds. Being machine, he couldn’t pick up too much however. He continued to trudge along with mechanical clicks.

His golden-yellow eyes then caught sight of the small girl and focused on her. His lips parted into a toothy grin. After all, his whole entire purpose was to be an entertainer. He swiftly approached her, trying not to be as intimidating as possible, which was rather difficult being a towering mechanical fox with sharp edges. Not to mention that rather large whole in his stomach revealing his servos, endoskeleton, and wires.

“Ahoy there, lass!” the animatronic greeted in a rather loud voice.

WELL I MADE A GUY NAMED CONNIE (my fox boy OC) and Leveret (my bunny boy OC) LEVERET IS ON THE RIGHT AND CONNIE IS THE OTHER ONE.
