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. He's had group shows at DC Arts Center, Target Gallery, Maryland Art Place, Transformer, Dupont Underground, The Smithsonian Arts and Industries Building, among many others. His work has been featured in The Washington Post, Whurk Magazine, Northern Virginia Magazine, and more. Gomez is an artist in residence at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA where he is currently working on augmented reality sculptures and virtual reality experiences.
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 three-dimensional forms and digital forms.
