Delving into the realm of artistic expression, Lix North unveils the inner landscapes of her being, mirroring them in the external world through her chosen medium of Steampunk Self-Portraits. This creative avenue grants her the ability to convey her concepts with utmost clarity and authenticity.
With each artwork, she embodies herself as a vessel, navigating her personal odyssey within a genetically compromised body, amidst an increasingly contaminated reality.
Meticulously crafted compositions bear witness to her attention to detail and artistic prowess. Lix invests her energy in designing and constructing intricate props like the Monocular, Battle Headdress, and Respirator, while thoughtfully selecting palettes and conceptual elements. Her Steampunk Self-Portraits art gracefully entwines meditative spaces with ornate intricacies, seamlessly merging the ordinary with the marvelously peculiar.
Within her self-representations, there resides a delicate equilibrium between the formidable warrior and the profoundly vulnerable. Audacious female archetypes, DNA mutations, pop culture fascinations, and psychological musings collide in her world, transcending the confines of time and ordinary existence in an endless pursuit of identity.
The genesis of her boundless imagination and unique perception of the world traces back to her childhood in the breathtaking seclusion of New Zealand’s hill country—a catalyst that ignited her creative fire. Following her graduation from NMIT’s School of Visual Arts, she found solace in Brisbane, Australia, and settled there in 2007.
Under the alias of Lix Creative, her graphic art studio, she flourished as a professional illustrator, photographer, and commissioned artist for almost ten years. However, in 2016, Lix shifted her focus towards conceptual fine art and exhibitions, reigniting her passion for exploring new artistic horizons.
