About Marianne Nix

About the artwork

Our legacy and that of previous minds influences Marianne Nix's work. In this case, explorers of Antarctica and the work of Anna Atkins, a botanist, who made cyanotype images of the flora she collected in the 19th Century, earning her place as a founding mother of photography. Marianne uses thick Saunders Waterford paper and paints the reactive chemicals onto it by hand. A transparency of a photograph (taken by Marianne) are then placed on the paper. The paper is exposed to sunlight, washed in water with added vinegar or lemon juice to deepen the blue colour and dried flat for a few days under heavy weights. Each exposure is unique, dependent on the weather, the day of year, the duration and time of day when exposed to sunlight. Marianne’s work is collected Internationally, selected for exhibition in the Mall Galleries (2012), Bankside Gallery (2015), the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (2012,2013), The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (2016) and the V&A print collection, London.
