ABOUT THE ARTIST

Hello! My name is Lexi Mathis.
Thank you for visiting my page!
I was born and raised in South Carolina, and since then have move to Texas, and just recently made the jump to the desert embrace of Nevada! I am living here with my beau looking to learn from the diversity of Las Vegas while growing and experiencing life as an artist.
My work explores and embraces the uncomfortable in human nature. I love using the human figure as a way to poke and prod at what it is that physically classifies us as a functioning human being. I also explore my physical insecurities using the creative process, as well as a coping mechanism for my admittedly exaggerated fear of mortality.
My favorite way to create art is through drawing, using intimate mark making methods including contour-line, and cross-hatching. I also enjoy painting and scrapbook-like cut and paste methods using 2D media I find abandoned or from my own trash. Using these hands on methods to explore my own psyche, I express an unabashed perspective on the human body while making an encompassing critique on society’s predispositions toward beauty and the offensive.
