PIXNIT at Basel

The work of PIXNIT is characterized by its reference to classical painting, the use of industrial materials and the covert nature of her installations. By combining ornamentalism, references to interior spaces and the ephemeral nature of popular languages of expression, such as graffiti and mural art. Her painting often challenges the aesthetic of graffiti and shifts our experience of public space. For Basel, she has concocted a 13Â’ x 30Â’ representation of an ornate iron gate that employs contemporary industrial imagery contrasted against floral design that moves between forming the structure of the gate and an organic reference to a mental state.
