In Alexis’ “hanging figure” series we are challenged to think about objectification of the human form. At just 3/4 life size, the sculpting and coloration of the piece are superb.
Alexis Silk infuses each sculpture with meaning. Certainly, she has mastered sculpting the human form in glass. However, each piece challenges us to think more deeply about her subjects.
Working on Murano, Alexis Silk is one of the leading hot glass sculptors. Above all, blowing glass offers a perfect intersection of passion for sculpture, a life-long fascination with the human figure, and her desire for conceptual expression in her work. Furthermore, she continues to define the frontier of conceptual expression in figurative hot sculpted Murano glass. Consequently, Alexis has work in galleries, museums and private collections around the country.
Alexis has been featured at SOFA Chicago for many years.
