2020 Fall Exhibition > Alexis Morano

My work, no matter the medium, is an extension of myself. I question the internal anxieties that fill everyday life and make them into works that are humorous and fun yet deeply personal. Instead of running away from insecurities, I create work that honors and acknowledges them. In doing so I create playful, fun, and colorful works that are a result of my most vulnerable moments. I am interested in many mediums however I focus on ceramics, video, and sound. I am always able to execute a product that is unique to my own style, and I am interested in the aesthetic that emerges from my process. I create both functional and sculptural works and take inspiration from images and visuals that have impacted me throughout my life. Reality television, internet presence, nature, fake nails, strawberries, farm life, film, music, all of these things come together to form a collage of work that is unique to Lexi. I am interested in how these inspirations take form in my work and create a dialogue between color, form, composition, and sound. The use of different mediums often informs my work and gives me the room to experiment with new techniques. As I continue to expand my influences and mediums, I explore the fleeting nature of emotion and memory.
