BA (Hons) Fine Art
Poppy Foxley’s portfolio is centred around the transformation of self through adversity. Unifying an interest in iconography, votive statues, Kristeva’s theory of the abject and the tension between the Apollonian versus the Dionysian, she coalesces moral discord in the modern era with historical parables and allegorical motifs. Her latest collection interrogates the way humans use occult theologies in an attempt to understand and interact with the process of nature. Guided by this exploration, Foxley’s artwork strives to reconcile suffering and grief, death, and rebirth, inspired by the universality of archetypal mythologies in history and folklore.
