Back to the Start charts Belinda Fox’s career to date through insightful words by leading arts professionals from the UK, Singapore and Australia with foreword by the honorable Paul Guest OAM QC.

Beautifully designed by Sally Roydhouse and creatively sectioned into four themes – Painting/Process by Kate Bryan, Paper/Past by Glenn Barkley, Travel/Nature by Professor Stephen Naylor and Collaborations/Connections by Michael Kempson, this book gives great insight into the workings and inspiration behind Fox’s practice.

Fox is seized with the rare gift of presenting unabashed juxtapositions of the awesome and the awful, of fragmented aspects of modern society, of conflict, of collaboration, of the complex relationship between doubt and hope, all within the umbrella of contemporary life…Her works, through whatever milieu, are both timely and timeless, and will undoubtedly connect with that deep-rooted sense of unbreakable fragility, of delicate firmity, that we all keep so private.” — Paul Guest
