Alexis Price is an American contemporary artist exploring concepts of Tarot, consciousness, and the female experience. Alexis also focuses on addiction, spirituality, and healing, finding meaning and interaction between each concept. She primarily works with oils to create her bold and sexually charged portraits of goddess like women and beasts. Inspired by juxtaposition and duality, Alexis fuses humans and animals, light and dark, as well as the organic and inorganic. She seeks to dig at deeper truths about self and healing, finding inspiration in personal catharsis, unnamed muses, and our mounting local and global crises.
