'All of my work is centred upon similar concerns: the history of art and painting, the position of the feminine and the artist as muse, and the play between abstraction and sensuality.'
Alexis Teplin's exhibition will consist of new work including seven painted costumes, four paintings and a performance. Teplin's work is engaged in an expanded painting practice. It begins within the history of two-dimensional painting and expands to include performance, video and sculpture. Teplin uses abstraction to construct performative installations based on seduction, artificiality and cultural signification. Her work draws on a wide range of art-historical, literary and film references, which ultimately explore the nature of sensuality, cultural politics and positions of decadence.
