Art Exhibition: in spite of me, here you are

These objects allude to religious tradition: the specter of a cross, which is both representational, and functional in the context of the construction of the works, portals which have a sacred history of having served as pathways that connect the Heavenly realm and the earthly realm, and works that fall asunder as if they are falling from grace, or simply looking for respite.

This exhibition aims to highlight how the personal self is represented in an artist's work, and the complexities of exploring conventions while on a quest for understanding. People’s experiences can alter how they see themselves or are perceived by others, and therefore can alter how artwork is perceived as well. With these works, Alexis hopes that the viewer will gain new perspectives and understanding of other people's lives, and perhaps be influenced in their own search for identity.
