I use paint to explore my internal landscape, championing the interplay between elements of contemplative space and ornate detail, the commonplace and the wonderfully strange.

Lix North is a self portraiture artist whose works are often subtly satirical and a reflection of an internal landscape.
“I have always turned to self-portraiture, familiar yet confronting, as the modality through which I can best express my concepts.”
“These portraits are reflections of my internal landscape and catharsis for my perseverations. Conceptually layered, surreal and often subtly satirical, these paintings explore my journey, as a bleeding heart in a fragile body, through an increasingly toxic world.”
“My compositions are carefully contrived, from the design and construction of elaborate props to palette choice and conceptual devices. I relish the craft of creating a visual narrative within a singular, static image. Similarly, I love the interplay between contemplative space and ornate detail, the juxtaposition of the commonplace with the wonderfully strange.”
“There is a dichotomy between the warrior and the acutely vulnerable that often underpins my representation of self. I am the canary uncaged traversing the untamed wilds between fragility and freedom. Mine is a world where bold female archetypes, psychological machinations and the ever-evolving trials of this contemporary epoch collide in a timeless grasp for identity that bestrides the bounds of the ordinary.”
Lix cites a childhood in the stunning isolation of New Zealand’s hill country as the catalyst for her ever-active imagination and unique way of seeing the world. In 2007 she settled in Brisbane, Australia, spending the majority of the ensuing decade as a professional illustrator, photographer and commission artist under the name of her graphic art studio, Lix Creative. She returned full-time to conceptual fine art and exhibition in 2016.
