She is Nixie #06/100. Created on a 5×5″ birch wood panel (12.7×12.7 cm).
Aideen is a real ray of life. If I come to see about it, she is the perfect complement to Ethel.
She is bubbly and always happy. However, don’t be fooled. She had her fair share of hardship but decided it would not define who she is. Aideen is proud to be able to shift the energy in a room as if people were finally able to do a big exhale once in her presence.
About my 100 Nixies project
2018 was a rough year for my creativity. I pondered way too often if I should just sell everything and move on to something else. I guess I put too much pressure on my shoulders.
However, I have learned to listen to the various creative nudges when they appear. This is how this project of creating 100 Nixies on small wood panels was born. No deadline, no constraint other than express whatever wants to be expressed and to do it surrounded by joy.
I am bored easily and get frustrated with my artwork on a weekly basis. This is why I decided to take some pressure off my shoulders and to do something fun instead: create a series of 100 Nixies. They have a few things in common: they are all Kings (see their crowns), they are born out of explorations.
