'The Nixie' was due to be exhibited as part of a group show in Margate at the end of 2019 titled ‘Schwarzwald', also known as the Black Forest. Unfortunately, the space was too small to hold too many of my larger works. So this piece has remained as yet largely unseen.
I wanted to capture as much magic within this artwork as possible. I had an everything but the kitchen sink mentality when it came to the making of 'The Nixie. For this reason, I think this artwork is an exceptional display of my ability as an artist. In turn showcasing my attention to details and the depth of research that is studied with each artwork. It's a triumphantly bold nod to all things majestic in the nature of fairytales.
Where else can you envisage, fireflies whizzing amongst mossy green hairy trees. A bear weightedly laps at the waters edge, whilst a vision of a Nixie emerges from the starry nighted bog. Reflected in the waters deep, is a full moon in all her shimmering glory. We catch a glimpse of a fawn as he skips across the waters, kicking the reflected stars back up to the sky in delight. Resting buoyantly upon the surface of these waters are joyously pink lilies in full bloom awaiting a kiss from a frog. Sadly perhaps, the frog is laid out drunkenly playing with his golden ball, awaiting the fair maiden. He may be waiting for quite some time...
This statement artwork reads like a richly tapestried scene, in the flesh the penmanship is luminous. A bold investment yes, but what a treasure to behold.
