BIOGRAPHY

Judy Fox is a ceramic sculptor working in New York . She is represented by PPOW gallery in New York, and at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Europe. A complete catalogue of figurative sculpture from 1990 to 2005 is available, edited by Austrian critic Barbara Wally.

As an undergraduate Ms. Fox studied sculpture at Yale and Skowhegan, then received a Masters in Art History from the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU. A pioneer of contemporary figuration, she started showing in the East Village in 1985, and has since participated in numerous private and public exhibitions around the US and Europe. She has guest lectured at many schools and museums.

Ms. Fox has received two NEA grants, an award from the "Anonymous Was a Woman" foundation and the New York Foundation for the Arts. She is a fellow of Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony, and is a 2006 fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
