Alexis K. Manheim is a California-based artist. Born in Los Angeles, she relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area to pursue studies at Stanford University where she graduated in 1997 with a BA in Studio Art. After graduation she went on to co-found Madcapp Studios, a San Francisco based artist studio collective and event space. She now works full-time as an artist from her own studio. She is heavily influenced by jazz and blues music as well as “circles, alchemy, carnivorous plants, and raw pigments” and makes many of her own pastels for her paintings. Alexis’ work can be found in numerous private collections from San Francisco to Stockholm.

Chandler Fine Art: BLUE

From the curator: “Inspired by ‘Blue’, the first film in the three-colors trilogy by Krzysztof Kieslowski… Blue is the anti-tragedy, red the anti-romance and white the anti-comedy. Roger Ebert said of Kieslowski, ‘He is one of the filmmakers I would turn to for consolation if I learned I was dying or to laugh on finding out I would live after all.’”

This is a Group Show of Gallery Artists that runs November 8 – 30, 2011.
