Lori Nix

Lori Nix

Lori Nix is fascinated by the intersection of the natural and manmade worlds that surrounds her. They react to and inform each other in meaningful ways that we still can’t fully comprehend. Her work examines this coexistence and its potential future in the face of a rapidly changing environment. Through the construction of dioramas Lori explore nature’s strength and perseverance in man’s absence. Painstakingly created in miniature, these constructed scenes raise awareness and inspired reflection on our everyday actions and means of survival. Lori is an artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Her photographs have been exhibited nationally and internationally at the Museum of Arts and Design, the Toledo Museum of Art, the Museum Schloss Moyland in Germany, ClampArt Gallery in New York, the George Eastman House and other venues. Lori is a 2014 John S. Guggenheim Fellow and a 2010 and 2004 NYFA Artist Grant recipient and a current Smack Mellon Studio Artists in residence.
