Alexis Rockman
  • As a person who grew up adjacent to the Nature
    and Science Museum in New York, Alexis Rockman
    has been interested in how culture interacts with
    plants and animals and the way culture influences
    natural history. He often investigates the
    present and future pressures of human
    consumption, domestication of animals, and
    medical applications. His surrealist large scale
    paintings depict ambivalence and create a context
    for questioning.
