Research

Diane Fox has worked for the past 27 years as a graphic designer and photographer. In recent years, she has designed print materials for the University of Tennessee’s College of Architecture and Design, including two faculty exhibit catalogs (32 and Place + Technology + Space) and the Bruce McCarty Catalogue. Two of her poster designs were selected for inclusion in Print Magazine and Place + Technology + Space was included in How Magazine. She has also won numerous Knoxville ADDY and TEN Show awards for her graphic design work.

Fox’s body of photographic work, “Unnatural History,” is composed of images shot in various natural history museums and taxidermy shops in the US and Europe. Using reflection and the inclusion of elements meant to remain unseen, the work examines the edges between the real and imagined, nature and artifice, and reflects on the disconnection of the human/animal relationship. Images from “UnNatural History” are cited in Giovanni Aloi’s book Art and Animals published by I.B. Tauris & Co. in 2012 and Taxidermy by Alexis Turner published by Thymes and Hudson in 2013. Solo exhibits of this work have been shown in a variety of spaces including at the Erie Art Museum, Erie, PA; Tower Fine Arts Gallery, SUNY Brockport, Brockport, NY; Greyfriars Art Space in Norfolk, England; Dom Muz Gallery, Torun, Poland; and  Santa Reparata Gallery, Florence, Italy. Selected pieces have been exhibited in several juried shows including the Los Angeles Center for Digital Photography, Los Angeles, CA; See.me Gallery, New York, NY; the Camera Club of New York, New York, NY; the Huntsville Museum of Art, Huntsville, AL; and Prix de la Photographie in Paris, France.
