Rachael Noel Fox tells stories constantly, writes sometimes, draws infrequently, paints occasionally, models rarely, and photographs often. The ratio between these activities vacillates wildly.
Fox’s resume ranges from website content for corporate clients like Acclivity Software, to the artistic documenting of performance artist Coralee Lynn Rose. Her work has been featured by: WFMU, Deep Red magazine, BBC World Service, Hi-5 Gallery, the Jonathan Levine Gallery, the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival, Local Project Gallery, and more. Fox has been a contributing guest on the podcasts Nerd Geek Dork, Star Wars Minute, Indiana Jones Minute, Mogwai Minute, Unjustly Maligned, and co-hosted a weekly podcast about General Hospital called Planet Lumina. She can be seen in the B-movies Nightmare on Elmo Street and Dicknado. She regularly hosts a show on the infamous radio station WFMU; Blah Blah Woof Woof.
Bursting forth three months early and weighing 2.5 pounds, Fox entered the world, and against all medical odds, survived. Childhood weekends were spent falling asleep listening to the sounds of Dad’s rock-n-roll band practice next door, while weekdays were spent tagging along in a photographic dark room, to fine art classes at the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art, or the Ford Modeling Agency with Mom. By age seven Fox was attending acting classes, performing on stage, drawing charcoals of nude models, modeling for portrait classes, and was cast for a sculpture installation directed by Grigory Gurevich which, now bronzed, still stands in Newark Penn Station.
It was in the midst of late childhood that stamina started to crumble, and the mysterious pain and health issues began. By the early 20’s, due to worsening vision problems and subsequent fear of driving, Fox relocated to New York City. Chronic illness continued to affect eyes and hands, so the once constant and beloved activities of reading, writing, and drawing slowed to an occasional crawl. It was during this period of artistic anorexia that a digital camera was found, left behind in a Manhattan cafe. Photography became the newest artistic outlet and constant companion. Quite used to being used as an object for art by others, Fox soon learned to turn the camera towards the self.
Now living in a world of ubiquitous and inescapable digital imagery, Fox has turned her artistic focus to learning how to make good radio, returning to her original love of performance, and drawing with both right and left hands.
