NIX LORI

The photographs by Lori Nix, an American artist who works with miniatures and dioramas, can be attributed to the Staged Photography. Basically they are “fake landscapes”, hand-made sceneries built with different materials such as foam, paper, varnishes, glue, than enlightened through chromatic effects and later photographed using a large format camera. 

Her most famous series of work, “The City”, deals with a world in which all the human beings are already extinguished and nature is reclaiming back the spaces previously stolen by men. The main subjects of this series are public places, now completely destroyed, that in the past used to celebrate everyday-life, culture and the knowledge of humanity, of which now remains only the destroyed skeleton of their buildings. Big plants grow wild and uncultivated and penetrate into the cracks, coming out of the smashed walls. It’s the triumph of nature in opposition to the human disaster. Violent calamities persist in Lori Nix’ photographs to upset the vision just as nature events have characterized the childhood of the artist, who lived in Kansas and was used to face with unpredictable manifestations of implacable Mother Nature.

“This idea of a future distorted is the catalyst and the basis of my work in the series “The City.” Every day the buildings are abandoned and collapse. Only Mother Nature has the ability to survive… Mother Nature and Time become the great levelers in these deserted spaces”.
