Nicomi Nix Turner was raised on a ranch in Southern Oregon. The Pacific Northwest upbringing kindled an affinity for the botanical and entomological. Her hyper-detailed illustrations invoke a surreal understanding of the perfection in nature.
The pieces I create reflect subject matters pertaining to biological deconstructionism, nature's legacy, alchemy, fables and counter-religious belief. In an orchestra of hyper-textured saturation, each piece is a cacophony of silent movement and erratic soliloquies. I work with a pencil in attempt to "paint" with the graphite; and with paper because of the unforgiving quality it possesses.
