Nicomi Nix Turner is an artist based out of Northern California. Creating detailed illustrations that invoke a surreal understanding of the perfection in nature, her works delve into connections between nature, mythology, decay and birth. Her hyper-detailed illustrations capture the coexistence of life and decay in a bouquet of fungi, personified insects, bones, flesh and fauna.
The pieces I create reflect subject matters pertaining to biological deconstructionism, nature's legacy, alchemy, fables and belief. In an orchestra of hyper-textured saturation, each piece is a cacophony of silent movement and erratic soliloquies.
This piece is part of our current exhibition Hi-Fructose presents: The Art of the Mushroom and will remain on display in the gallery through December 9, 2018. We will ship this piece the week of December 12th.
