Laine Nixon

Laine Nixon is a contemporary painter known for her non-objective, responsive works. She pursues her work through a studio practice, developing paintings that subtly embody the conflict between visual perception and the physical object – or between thought and thing. For Nixon, there is no definitive hierarchy between the two. When asked, she encourages the viewer to oscillate back and forth in order to experience both realities. She explains, “I tend to enjoy ambiguity as a path to refuge which in turn leads me to all kinds of other good things such as deeper understanding, alternative perspectives, a sense of mystery, or even peace and joy. These are the aspects I wish to share by sharing my work.”
