Nix relishes the use of various media in her work. Old and new media support Nix’s exploration of past and present ideas and minds.
‘Of my mind’ a precious jewel like work, combines traditional hand made cyanotype print making from the 19th Century with the tools of the 21st Century. The welsh poppies taken from the roadside in Hampstead London are carefully composed into a magical mysterious scene which is exposed to direct sunlight and washed multiple times in water. The image is enriched by the development of the deep midnight blues of Cyanotype; shadow and light.
Nix’s imagination and keen eye for colour and composition along with the use of digital tools bring together nature’s creation and the mind of man.
