Artist Statement:

My work explores the hopeful journey of a physically fragile being through an increasingly imperilled world. I paint reflections of my internal landscape, conceptually layered, surreal and often subtly satirical. Each of my works is remedy to one of my many ailments, each a soldier in a never-ending merry-go-round of infernal internal battles.

'Avant-Garde' stands sentinel for all privileged and plagued by their vulnerability to environmental decay. She is the stalwart scout, forewarned and forearmed, a comrade to all whose sensitive biologies set them on the frontlines of ecological change.

Lix North

Lix North cites a childhood in the stunning isolation of New Zealand’s hill country as the catalyst for her
ever-active imagination, unique way of seeing and penchant for introspective self-portraiture.

Within 12 months of graduating from NMIT’s School of Visual Arts, Lix’s work caught the eye of revered gallerist and Auckland Art Fair
founding director Jennifer Buckley, securing her first solo show at one of Auckland’s most enduring and respected contemporary galleries,
the Oedipus Rex.

Three years on she became the youngest artist published in E.M. Caughey’s ‘Art New Zealand Today’ (Saint Publishing, 2003).

In 2007 Lix 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.

2016 saw her return her focus to full-time conceptual fine art and exhibition.
