"Heart of a Snake"

Continuing its reputation for showing some of the most exciting contemporary art by local artists of all stripes, Shek Vega’s Gravelmouth Gallery will host a must-see Second Saturday exhibition of more than 20 new works by Angela Fox, entitled “Heart of a Snake.” This marks the largest solo exhibit to date for Fox, whose colorful and thought-provoking paintings take place in a sparsely populated and highly symbolic imaginative space. Every piece seems to intimate all-out rebellion, in the most community-oriented, holistic and profound sense. The characters that inhabit Fox’s work “congregate, wearing cocoon-like protective shells of layered garments that obscure identity while signifying membership.” Forming gangs, these subjects “hang out and drink beer while gathering supplies, slaying serpents and establishing camps — embarking on adventures of survival, creation and destruction.” In our unstable and iniquitous times, these works feel urgently important and seem to speak to the dispossessed of a potent, healing pathway through the banality, balderdash and barbarism of the moment.
