Alexis Myre

Poetry That’s Not Poetry

The poetry of Alexis Myre’s sculpture is constructed with copper & nickel, felt & enamel.  It is held together by  steel forming stakes &  silk thread:    I love how all the pieces (or creatures?)  have cranks & the positioning of their bodies — the implication of motion & emotion.  They are strong but vulnerable.  & They have mouths (or are they ears or limbs?)  Whatever they are, they seem hungry & funny &  human.

I would love to see a Pixar film with all these sculptures as animated characters.

Alexis Myre also makes wall pieces and drawings which further show her uniquely emotional geometric take on life.
