Alexis Day is a Portland based, mixed media artist, originally from the coastal town of Bandon, Oregon. Utilizing her background in psychology, she investigates the themes of perception and memory, and how these processes relate to both individual and cultural identity. Working with a variety of mediums including paint, photographs, fabric, thread, and charcoal, Day creates artworks that resist categorization, and communicate through both their rendered subject matter, as well as the materials and processes used to create them.
Day has earned an MFA in Visual Studies from Pacific Northwest College of Art, a BS in Art Practices from Portland State University, and a BS in Psychology from the University of Oregon. Recent exhibitions include the California Exhibition, at the TAG gallery in Los Angeles, Putting it Together 2, at the Foundry in St. Charles, Missouri, Figuratively Speaking at Liberty Arts Gallery in Bend, Oregon, and Dismantled, a solo exhibition at the Lodge Gallery in Portland, Oregon. She has also participated in several Portland group exhibitions including, Can’t Touch This, at the 511 Gallery, Potentialization/Actualization, at the Center for Contemporary Art and Culture, Coaxial at the Commons Gallery, Groundcover at The Lodge Gallery, Confabulation at the Mayer Gallery and Curious Methods at The AB Gallery.
