Alexis Price is a self-taught painter from Raleigh, North Carolina currently residing and working in Brooklyn New York. In her most recent work, she has been playing with themes that mimic internet culture such as bright colors, memes, emojis, etc. and partners them with darker imagery. This darkness speaks to parts of the human reality that our internet culture is masking. Alexis has also been exploring the idea of perspective and reality and how each person’s reality is so vastly different from the next – and has been experimenting with the idea of what’s ‘real’ and what is not.
She works primarily with oil, is inspired by animals, and has a strange fascination with the color pink.
“Every animal I use is for a reason. I am fascinated with the idea of predator versus prey. Strong versus weak. My paintings have a bit of this intention — the struggle of allowing yourself to be a victim or embracing your own power.” – Alexis Price (Oak City Hustle)
