Alexis Gomez was born in 1994 in Fairfax, Virginia. He received his BFA from the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design at the George Washington University. Gomez is an interdisciplinary artist with a focus in figural sculpture, animation, and painting. He is a Sparkplug member at the District of Columbia Arts Center and Flatfile artist at Transformer gallery currently living in Virginia and working in Washington DC.
Gomez's 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 induce an inner and outer body experience. This is a constant transition that our consciousness undergoes. A transition that is manifested every time we wake up and fall asleep, day dream, use our phones, watch a movie, etc. How do we engage with literal space and formless space? Can we separate body from mind? These are the curiosities that Gomez strives to address in a dialogue between two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms.
