Nicomi Nix Turner
Nicomi "Nix" Turner is an Oakland based illustrator, recognized for her intricately detailed botanical-scapes, Esoteric symbolism, provocative renderings of The Sacred Feminine, and "Anatomical Deconstructionism". Her works are created using graphite on paper in a way that has been described as a talent for manipulating and "painting" with the basic medium.
″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.″ 
Creating earthen stark worlds, including elements of ferns, bones, flowers, fungi, moths, insects and birds, Turner cites mythology, botany, and religious practices as her greatest influences. Botany is a reoccurring theme in Turner's illustrations, to which she infers a sense of post-modern regrowth among portrayals of the human forms depicted in her pieces.
