Printmaking and Painting
Marianne Nix is concerned with accumulated influences, legacy and ideas. Born of Dutch and Australian parents, having lived in the Netherlands and Japan, now living in North London. Marianne’s work merges abstraction and figuration, photography, the use of digital tools, text, traditional oil painting and printing techniques to create works in series. Current themes and inspirations are the archives of the correspondence of Charles Darwin and JD Hooker during their long friendship and exchange of ideas before Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species.
Ongoing ideas are linked to Marianne’s local surroundings in Hampstead, London and those who live and have lived there such as Piet Mondrian, Ben Nicholson and Sigmund Freud.
Selected for exhibition with the Mall Galleries, The Royal Society of Painter Printmakers, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and the Victoria & Albert museum print collection London.
