Fox Hysen was born in San Rafael, California, in 1982, cusp Gen-X/Millennial, received a MFA from Yale University in 2015 and BFA from New York University in 2006. Solo exhibitions include Gallery 16 in San Francisco, The Suburban in Milwaukee 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 in Austria, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien, Silberkuppe and Basso all in Berlin, Germany. 

Hysen’s work often oscillates between drawing, printmaking and painting via a collage modus operandi where making is shown to be thinking. Hysen’s visually and materially diverse practice allocates a space in painting for play, poetry, confidence and doubt.
