Natalie del Nox works in mixed techniques.

Most of her paintings begin with photography and digital work. The image is then transferred on a base of gold or copper leaf directly applied to a black gessoed canvas. In certain pieces, details of silk paper are added prior to the transfer, a delicate material that adds a layer of color without blocking the shine of the metal sheet. Black opaque paint is then applied to reveal the image as a form of gold and copper emerging from darkness.

The process contains a play of opposites – creating a perfect image and then submitting it to the unforgiving technique of image transfer and pushing through with creating high contrasts with matte black and bright iridescence.

Del Nox’s sculptures in assemblage are a further exploration of the themes and images of her canvases rendered into three dimensions. These emergent forms relate to their environment in exciting new ways, bringing their own unique meanings to these pieces.

''Take a deep breath. Hold it. Be still and calm, fully present. Notice the sound, the air on your skin, the life buzzing around you. This is the feeling I try to convey in my art. That stillness in time, that deep centered knowing... that moment of mindfulness.''
