Alexis Marguerite Teplin (b. 1976, California, lives and works in London) Teplin was Starr Fellow at The Royal Academy of Art, London (2003), and completed her MFA at the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena in 2001. Her loose multi-coloured canvases are often un-stretched or tailored with pleats and painted in a vibrant and patchy pallet. In her own words, her work is concerned with ‘the history of art and painting, the position of the feminine [...] and the play between abstraction and sensuality’. Recent solo shows include Mary Mary, Glasgow; Blanket Contemporary, Vancouver; and HOTEL, London.
