Nicomi Nix Turner is an artist based out of Northern California. Creating detailed illustrations that invoke a surreal understanding of the perfection in nature, her works delve into the occult and the connections between alchemy, mythology, decay and birth. Her hyper-detailed illustrations capture the coexistence of life and decay in a bouquet of fungi, personified insects, bones, flesh and fauna.

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.
