2021 Spring Exhibition > Lexie Sky

As a kid, I had always imagined being someone I am not, such as a fairy flying around the woods, an elf fighting for their homeland, a simple adventurer looking to save and help whoever they can, or even a dragon flying in the skies. These fantasy worlds and species fascinated me and I believed they existed somewhere. That fascination still lives on in me today and inspires the work I create. I love the magic of the fantasy world and today I see a lot of that same magic in the natural world and incorporate it into my work. My focus is on creating characters that are based around fantasy and the magical qualities of nature through the use of water media, gauche, collage, and digital media. The materials and techniques I choose to use are meant to reflect on the character and their emotions, such as making fairy wings with a translucent paper and painting the fairies very lightly to emphasise their delicacy. My characters also capture different emotions by incorporating different elements of nature, such as leaves gently blowing in the wind to emphasize a sense of calmness or plants that surround and embrace them, communicating a feeling of internal growth.

Additionally, I like to photograph my work outside in natural settings, surround the piece of artwork with plants and a corresponding color scheme to compliment the work. The simple backgrounds of my illustrations, set against a natural backdrop, provide a sense of depth. The settings I choose also add to the overall composition and emotion of the work and I plan to further explore photographing some of my work outdoors.
