Alexis Rockman’s practice centres on an exploration of environmental corruption and human excess. His dystopian landscapes are filled with relics of human environments pictured in a post-apocalyptic world filled with hybrids and creatures that have adapted and endured in this new world. Rockman renders his saturated landscapes in bright tones, using dramatic lighting, influenced by his admiration for cinema, to heighten the tensions of his subject matter. His works confront our own actions and the impact they have and will have on the natural environment.
Rockman graduated with a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and Visual Art in 1985. His work has been exhibited at numerous significant institutions including the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Boston, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Washington D.C., the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, PS1 MoMA as well as the Venice Biennale. His work is held in the permanent collection of several museums and galleries including the Brooklyn Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Tang Museum and the Guggenheim collection.
