Alexis’ work investigates the internal and external spaces we inhabit as human beings. Using illusionistic patterns and figural forms to represent both literal and metaphorical space, he creates settings that bridge the physical and virtual realms. Alternating between 3D modeling software and figural sculpture, his work fluxes between the tangible and artificial. How do we engage with literal space and formless space? Can we separate body from mind? These are the curiosities that Alexis strives to address in a dialogue between three-dimensional and digital forms.
