​​The world around us is transforming into the starkly unimaginable. Spacial and sensory understandings are breaking down and the universe we see every day becomes more and more the hideous reflection of our collective unconscious, both familiar and unknown. Pop-Surrealist painter and illustator Alexis Price creates a vivid and provocative body of work that encapsulates this contemporary phantom duality. Self-cannibalizing twins, hermaphroditic archetypes, twisted amputated physiological human forms, grotesque and profane taboo, shapeshifted part-human/part-animal beasts and cosmic alchemical symbolisms populate her artworks dancing alongside lush rainbows and geometric grids, galaxial backdrops, and perversely contextulaized pop-inconography.  Her work exudes an acute autobiographical perception as well as a visionary external commentary, As Above So Below. Alexis’ unique artistic understanding is rooted in being completely self-taught; visual art is her necessary cathartic communication. However, Alexis is no stranger to the art world, having spent a majority of her upbringing performing/studying Modern Dance/Ballet/Tap, receiving her Modern Dance degree from Meredith College in 2006 and regularly collaborating with (2015 MacArthur Fellow) Michelle Dorrance of Dorrance Dance. Though despite her opportunities for advancement in the Modern Dance world, she decidedly shifted all focus to her fine art career, finding her true voice resonating across her paintings and drawings. After successfully establishing her art career in Raleigh, NC, Alexis relocated to Brooklyn, NY in 2017 where she currently resides. Her artwork has been featured in wowXwow, Art For The Sick, Bizarre Beyond Belief and Queer Appalachia. She has contributed to numerous public art projects in North Carolina and shows regularly in New York City galleries.
