Always with concept in mind, Alexis challenges all of us to think about our relationship to money in this piece. At nearly six feet tall, it is constructed entirely of calcedonia glass and suspended by an internal metal armature and skirt.
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.
American, b. 1983, Seattle, WA, based in Murano Venice, Italy
