Fox spoke about the purpose of her art to Ebony, “I’m moving Black Art forward one step at a time by being present and a voice, especially in the fine Aat world. Although once reserved for the very wealthy and traditional, not many Black artists were represented by fine art galleries that were primarily frequented by white patrons and housed White photographers and artists. Now, my work is in the homes of White people and so many other nationalities. I opened the door to share my art with the world by self-publishing a body of my work and partnering with different entities, like the private members-only club Soho House to tour several houses and have conversations about the art. The world can support and nurture Black artists through representation, commissioned assignments and collecting the work to warm their homes and businesses. Brands can present more opportunities for us to tell stories from an authentic and different point of view. We all have stories to tell, and no two are the same.”
