Alexi Marshall

 
 
 

Alexi Marshall (UK, 1995) works in linocut print, fabric, drawing and embroidery investigating themes of spirituality, sexuality, womanhood and youth. In utilizing embroidery and fabric in a fine art context she seeks to subvert connotations of gendered craft, colour and imagery. Alexi uses these materials which for so long have folded into the tradition of ‘women’s work’ to create unapologetic imagery of women in their bold sexuality, divinity and unconstrained freedom, moved by notions of radical softness. She graduated from the Slade School of Art, and was selected as part of Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018, with exhibitions at the Liverpool Biennial and South London Gallery. Alexi recently had a successful solo exhibition at Public Gallery and was part of two group exhibitions with Daniel Benjamin Gallery.
