Nick Fox’s ACE funded research project, Phantasieblume, explores romantic idealisation, personal histories and representations of desire, longing and loss through a delicate interweaving of both appropriated symbols and myths from the past as well as mages drawn from contemporary culture. These comprise of complex interrelations between paintings, drawings craft objects, cultural artefacts and sub cultural symbology. This body of work, and the associated exhibitions and commissioned writings were documented in Fox's first monograph, published in 2010. The launch of Fox’s Artist Monograph Limited Edition Monograph, Phantasieblume, coincided with the exhibition of the same name at Vane gallery, Newcastle. The monographs received funding and support from Arts Council England, Newcastle University, National Glass Centre, Vanguard Court, Sundeland University, Vane Gallery, Culture lab and Sunderland University.
