Devra Fox is a visual artist based in San Francisco, CA. Compelled by a desire for and expression of bodily containment, Fox’s works embody the power of nature and our powerlessness to sway it. She questions how our reactions to unpredictability seep outside our bodies, creating physical and emotional attachment to environments and objects around us. By animating her internal state, Fox creates palpable forms of sentiment, memory, and relationship to help her understand her own reactions to the world. Through the meticulous and meditative practice of graphite drawing in a monochromatic palette (think gray, red, blue), Fox’s artwork pulls on our imaginations to consider the physical manifestation of our emotions, and how our self might be contained beyond our own bodies. 


Devra Fox (b. 1989) received her BA in Studio Art from Bard College and MFA in Visual Art from Columbia University. Fox participated in residencies at Pocoapoco, The Women’s Studio Workshop, The Vermont Studio Center and Kala Art Institute. Fox’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
