Nicomi Nix Turner is an artist based out of Northern California. Her detailed works invoke a surreal understanding of the perfection in nature, the imperfections of self and delve into connections between nature, mythology, decay and birth. The works 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 belief.
In an orchestra of hyper-textured saturation, each piece is a cacophony of silent movement and erratic soliloquies.
