‘All of my work is centred upon similar concerns: the history of art and painting, the position of the feminine and the artist as muse, and the play between abstraction and sensuality.’

Alexis Teplin’s exhibition consists of new work including seven painted costumes, four paintings and a performance.

Teplin’s work is engaged in an expanded painting practice. It begins within the history of two-dimensional painting and expands to include performance, video and sculpture. Teplin uses abstraction to construct performative installations based in seduction, artificiality and cultural signification. Her work draws on a wide range of art historical, literary and film references, which ultimately explore the nature of sensuality, cultural politics and positions of decadence.

Alexis Teplin (b.1976) lives and works in London. She competed her M.F.A. at Art Centre College of Design, Los Angeles in 2001 and was the Starr Fellow at the Royal Academy Schools in 2002. Teplin has exhibited widely, including venues such as the Sydney Biennale; the Migros Museum, Zurich; the Whitechapel Gallery, the Hayward Gallery, the Serpentine Gallery in London; Tramway for Glasgow International and has a forthcoming exhibition at the Bluecoat in Liverpool. She is a Senior Lecturer at Kingston University and tutor at the Royal College of Art.
