DESCRIPTION

Red Poppy Art House is excited to present Meanwhile. . . an exhibition of Alexis Amann’s recent paintings exploring monster women, demons, Ophelia, witches, baby belugas, fish-headed persons, and the complications of having too many or not enough eyes. Amann’s acrylic gouache paintings and installations on cut paper contain layers of worlds populated by creatures, human and otherwise, driven by the forces of love and water. She combines characters and stories from literature, pop culture, mythology, natural history and personal narrative to create new stories, worlds, and meaning within her paintings. Amann was raised on the Oregon Coast and received her BA in Drawing/Painting/Printmaking from Portland State University in 2002 and her MFA. in Painting from San Francisco Art Institute in 2006. Her work has been shown at New Image Gallery in Los Angeles, Johansson Projects in Oakland, Dust Gallery in Las Vegas, and has been included in numerous exhibitions in the Bay Area as well as Portland, Seattle, Miami and New York.
