Now Showing:

Nicomi Nix Turner
We are very pleased to announce that Nicomi Nix Turner is now showing at Varnish. Take a look at her beautiful, detailed drawings on our website, or meet us at the gallery by appointment for a private viewing.

Nicomi is a featured artist in our upcoming exhibition at the LA Art Show in January 2014 along with artists Dan Quintana, Ransom & Mitchell, and Lucien Shapiro.

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 attempts to “paint” with the graphite, and with paper because of the unforgiving quality it possesses. - Nicomi Nix Turner
