Fox Hysen was born in San Rafael, California, in 1982, received an MFA from Yale University in 2015, and BFA from New York University in 2006. Solo exhibitions include Gallery 16 in San Francisco, Lehtinen Gallerie in Berlin, and Marcello Marvelli Gallery in New York. Hysen has been part of numerous group shows nationally and abroad including Capital and et al. in San Francisco, Basilica Hudson, New York, Kunsthaus, Bregenz, Austria, Kunstraum Kreuzber/Bethanien, Silberkuppe, Basso, all in Berlin, Germany among many others. She was also the recipient of the 2016 Tournesol award for painting by the Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, CA.
Hysen’s work often oscillates between drawing, printing, and painting via a collage modus operandi where making is shown to be thinking. Though historically, there is a tendency to procure specific and separate compartments to analyze each particle of such a triad, Hysen’s printmaking may act like painting and vice-versa, while drawing and collage may interchangeably construct vertebrae wherein Hysen allocates a constant mode of reinvention and rumination.
