Lix North: Lux ex Tenebris

28th April - 16th May

Lethbridge Gallery

Lix North’s eccentric, hyperrealist self portraits explore her own internal landscape and its reflection in the world around her. Laced with metaphor, augmented with ornate detail and a hint of satire, her portraits juxtapose the commonplace with the wonderfully strange.

Ever technically explorative, Lix is particularly fond of the interplay between elements of intense detail and contemplative space. Each composition is carefully contrived; from the imagining and construction of elaborate props, to calculated palette selection and the accentuation of key conceptual and compositional elements.

Warrior or fool, explorer or martyr, barbarian or philosopher. Each work, each incarnation of self, tells the story of a personal battle, ideology or foible. Hers is a world where DNA mutations, pop culture fascinations and psychological machinations collide in a timeless grasp for identity that bestrides the bounds of the ordinary.

Lix has been involved in a number of prominent Brisbane art projects including creating the two 10.5m high Fish Lane mural installations ‘East of the Mountains’ and ‘West of the Sea’.
