Alexis Myre

Medium: Mixed Media
Residency: September 1, 2014–
November 30, 2014

Alexis Myre was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado. She studied mathematics and industrial design before transferring to California College of the Arts, where she received a BFA with an emphasis in jewelry and metal arts in 2010.

Alexis’ work is intricate by design and imbues itself both mathematically and symbolically with the idea that all material holds a hidden potential. Her approach to art-making involves mapping and scaling, as well as trial and error, in order to find a solution. The solution she seeks is not definitive or static. Rather, she constructs compositions that gesticulate in their design and are full of tension and activity simultaneously.

During her residency at HCCC, Alexis plans to include hallow-formed metalwork in her mixed-media wall pieces, creating an architectural landscape and a symbolic mapping. She will integrate the metal work into the embroidered plexi-glass surface to serve both as a function of structural integrity and an important visual element in the work.

Alexis has exhibited work in New York, Chicago, Asheville, Oakland, Houston, and other U.S. cities, as well as Rajasthan, India. She was the recipient of a Windgate Fellowship in 2010 and participated in artist residencies in India, Maine and New Mexico. She will be with HCCC from September through November, 2014.
