Nyx Mathews is an early-career sculptor working across multiple media. Through speculative works which are materially both ambiguous and experimental, she explores anthropogenic environments and their impact on human beings.
Mathews is presently undertaking Honours at the ANU School of Art and Design and has exhibited in group exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra. From 2017 to the present, she has been part of the team producing the Australian of the Year Awards, assisted Mike Parr, and completed private commissions.
She has been the recipient of various awards, including a residency at the Canberra Glassworks in 2018, and a scholarship to attend the Corning Museum of Glass (Corning, NY), and was the recipient of a 2018 Arts ACT grant.
Mathews was awarded her first solo exhibition, ‘Interposed’, at ANCA gallery in 2018, followed by an exhibition at Tributary Projects titled, ‘Silica’.
She will exhibit a new body of work at CraftACT later in 2019, in a three-person exhibition titled ‘Material Codes: explorations of form via systematic making’.
