About Marianne Nix

About the artwork

An artwork layering Trachycarpus leaves, shadow and light - created during Covid 19 Lockdown.

Plant explorers brought treasures from overseas centuries ago and continue to do so with both positive and negative impact. Finding the exotic Himalayan Asian palm Trachycarpus grows in London gardens, Marianne is inspired to use them to create contemporary works using one of the earliest photographic techniques developed.

Our legacy and that of previous minds influences Marianne Nix’s work. In this case, plant explorers 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. The leaves of the Trachycarpus 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.This is sometimes repeated in layers.

This is an unique artwork and is dependent on the weather, the day of year, the duration and time of day when exposed to sunlight.
