Fine Art

Crafting a world where minds bend spoons and crows wear clownish clogs, Lix’s eclectic, technically extraordinary and often darkly humorous commentary on societal, political and psychological foibles has earned her critical acclaim. She is capable of a level of realism that almost steps off the canvas and a contradistinct quality of visceral abstraction that invites the viewer inside…

Lix North believes that our fortunes lie in the strength we find to act as if we are significant; to act as if we are a part of the sum of the whole of humanity and, from that perspective, far greater than the sum of its occasionally disingenuous parts.

 

Crafting a world where minds bend spoons and crows wear clownish clogs, her eclectic, technically extraordinary and often darkly humorous commentary on societal, political and psychological foibles has earned her critical acclaim. She is capable of a level of realism that almost steps off the canvas and a contradistinct quality of visceral abstraction that invites the viewer inside.

 

While for the most remaining detatched from contemporaneously fashionable movements/artists, she sites a fascination with the exquisitely temporal vanitas still life of Claesz, the monumental simplicity of Dutch golden boy Vermeer, the wretched light and depths of Rothko and Pollock, the illustrative finesse of 葛飾 北斎 (Katsushika Hokusai), and the grotesque beauty and conceptual exhilaration of Damien Hirst.

 

Lix is as much influenced by the music she listens to and writes, the television and film she watches, the books and philosophies she has digested, the people she talks to and observes and the thoughts and emotions pursuent of her conscience than by any other visual practitioner or precedent. The resulting body of work is, for the most part, indefineable in style or genre yet far from being disparate seems as deftly illustrative of concept as there is evidence, in a shadow, of the light.

 

An NMIT Visual Arts graduate, Lix exhibits and sells internationally and is available for commission work. She lives in Brisbane, Australia and divides her time between the Lix Creative studio, restoring and building vintage BMX bikes, and life as a session vocalist, songwriter for hire and recording artist with her bands MedollicThe Premier Ship and Atlas of Oceans

 

NB. Past work under the names ‘Alex Ensor’, ‘Alex Bacskay’ and ‘Lix Bacskay’ are credited to Lix North.
