Nelleke Nix Signed 1987 Ceramic Mixed Media Wall Sculpture


A 1987 ceramic mixed media wall sculpture by Dutch-American artist and potter Nelleke Nix (born 1939). Signed to the verso “Nelleke Nix” and dated 1987, the hand built plaque depicts figures, shapes, and architectural structures accented in blue, gray, purple and pink. A hand painted female bust adorned with fur and a leather beaded necklace is affixed to the top. 

A member of SoHo20 and known for mixed media and printmaking, Nelleke Nix moved to the United States in 1968 and became the head of the art department for an all girls' school. Since then she has maintained an art studio in Washington State and has been an advocate for women artists. Her work is held permanently at The Rhode Island Museum of the Holocaust, The Victoria and Albert Museum London England, and The National Museum of Women in the Arts among others. 

"While creating art I treat the piece worked on as pre-existing but in the throws of change. I explore surface, color, depth, medium, technique and possibility. Subject matter often reflects rescue. I observe what is happening in the world, especially in the world of women, who I trust will in growing numbers participate in preserving what is now at risk.” — Nelleke Nix, 2011
