Karla-Nixon

An M. Tech Fine Art Graduate from the Durban University of Technology, which she completed cum laude, Karla focused on paper cutting as a contemporary art form, for which she has received numerous awards.

Aside from the fact that she intricately transforms a banal sheet of paper into a magical man-made structure in a bid to explore existence, Karla shapes her subjects in what is considered one of today’s most consumable, recyclable and fragile commodities. Her chosen imagery, whether it be a portrait or an industrial building, is a quest to capture the ephemeral moments of existence.

Karla’s work can be seen at StateoftheART Gallery in Shortmarket Street, Cape Town
