Alexis Castro Member Since March 2017 Artist Statement Alexis Castro was born and raised in San Diego, California where she took an interest in art at a young age. Alexis continued to hone her skills over the years while experimenting with different mediums. Today the majority of her work is Oil on canvas which she describes as “Alternative Realism”.
Her works sometimes radiate a cold and latent violence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. By emphasizing aesthetics, she focuses on the idea of spaces where anyone can do anything at any given moment. Moments are depicted that only exist to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.Her paintings appear as dreamlike images in which fiction and reality meet and past and present fuse.
