The artwork of Carson Fox is inspired by the Victorian-era tradition of making jewelry and ornamental objects from human hair. In the 18th and 19th centuries, it was common to give loved ones a lock of hair as a remembrance and a token of affection. Fox has since monumentalized this art form by creating large-scale curtain-like hair sculptures. Each curtain is elaborately woven of very thin wire wrapped with hair. Similar to fine lace work, Fox's ornamental structures are intricately handmade and feature an open repetitive pattern that is both structural and decorative. Fox's artwork, that "owes its provenance to tradition," in a contemporary realm provides amazement and mystery because of its scale, use of materials, and intended function.
