Reception Thursday October 13, 2016 at 5:30 pm; Artist Talk at 6:30 pm
Alyssa Lempesis works from imaginative speculation on uncanny ecologies. Her work merges the natural and the fantastic to create animated scenes of a world that exists somewhere between the unknown and the familiar, the present and the future.
Lempesis received an MFA from University of California at Davis (2014) and a BA at University of California at Berkeley (2012). She is an artist and educator living and working in the East Bay. Recent solo exhibitions include Aggregate Space (Oakland), Diablo Valley College (Pleasant Hill), and Alter Space Gallery (San Francisco) as part of the Jail Cell Residency Program.
