Nix+Gerber: Empire Opens in NYC
The opening/artist reception for the latest exhibition of work by team Nix+Gerber opened last night at the ClampArt Gallery in New York City. Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber have worked together for over 16 years and this is the first event which provides each artist with equal credit.
The well-attended event showcased stunning oversized photographs featuring urban landscapes with a post-apocalyptic view of the world (fun!).
It took team Nix + Gerber over 4 years to create nine separate and intricately detailed dioramas using mixed materials which would then become awesome photographs for this exhibition.

While many of the miniatures used in their dioramas are discarded after shooting them, a few were kept for display in the Gallery.

Nix+Gerber's attention to detail and weathering techniques are incredible, right down the the cigarette butts which line the sidewalk in "Sentinel".
Empire will be on view through January 27, 2018 at the ClampArt Gallery located at 247 West 29th Street in New York City.
