Alexis Rockman

  • Artist

Alexis Rockman has depicted a darkly surreal vision of the collision between civilization and nature–often apocalyptic scenarios on a monumental scale--for over three decades. Recent notable museum solo exhibitions include “Alexis Rockman: Manifest Destiny” at the Brooklyn Museum, in 2004, which traveled to several institutions including the Wexner Center and The Smithsonian Art Museum organized “Alexis Rockman: A Fable for Tomorrow.” The artist had collaborated with director Ang Lee on the prize-winning film “Life of Pi,” preparing conceptual sketches of a dreamlike journey into the depths of the ocean. Rockman’s work is represented in many museum collections in the US and internationally.
