Who Am I ?

DAVID FOOX

May 2011

1: Who am I?

Artist, painter, toymaker, printmaker, and otherwise conceptual thinker.

2: What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I spend most of my time in the fourth dimension. I find it helps creatively to be “somewhere else”. I am currently working on an entire diverse body of work relating to rabbits, hares, and bunnies. This is, afterall, the Year of the Rabbit!

3: Where are you from and where are you going?

I am not quite sure if any human can possibly know the answer to this. We simply do not know where we came from nor do we have any idea where we are going. However on a more physical level, I would say, “I came from Africa, and I am heading to Asia”.

4: Who is your biggest hero?

My heroes in no particular order are: King David, Hermes, Pythagoras, Thoth, Heracles, Thor (not the movie), and Ghengis Khan. I channel each as necessary to get through my days.

5: What book is your bible?

A combination of a few books: Manly P. Hall’s The Secret Teachings of All Ages, The Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes, and The Temple in Man by Schwaller de Lubicz. I love books that illuminate and shine!

6: What are some things you love?  And some things you hate?

I love wet paint, beautiful paintings, vinyl toys, chocolate, sugar free Red Bull, crossing things off lists, laughing a lot, and bunnies. I don’t really hate anything, and focus on the Love and Light part mostly. I hate duality but often find myself caught up in it.

7: What is your raison d’être?

C R E A T I O N: by any and all means, to an end I cannot see.

8: What is your favorite color?

A fifty-fifty mixture of gray and camo green and a swirl of light pink around the outskirts. Truthfully, that’s what I am into right now.

9: Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Dr. Manhattan from Watchmen. He represents the fine balance between emotional reactions and timeless omnipotence. When I dream about consciousness and the human condition, I always end up thinking about Dr. Manhattan and his ability to explore universes on a quantum wave.

10: What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

I love Soho House, East Side Social Club, Norwood House, Rose Bar, Death & Company, The Slaughtered Lamb, Milk & Honey, Lit Lounge, and of course FOOX HQ  in NYC.

11: What turns you on?

The Magic of the Moment, where time stops and a connection between two people is made, even in the hustle bustle of New York City.

12: What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

Do you believe in Magic?

David Foox (FOOX) was born in South Africa and raised partly in America and New Zealand. FOOX is most interested in the fabric of our reality and the laws applicable to Universal Reality and philosophy.

FOOX weaves stories through ancient symbols relating to the Norse Pagans, Neo-Druidic, Kabbalistic, Neo-Christian, Judeo-Christian, Buddhism, and Hermetic Masonry. This has resulted in a broad and extensive network of art collectors and lovers discussing elements of FOOX’s work from humanistic and universal perspectives.
