Alexis Gómez began as a student of engineering systems. However, he decided to postpone his engineering studies to move to another state to study art. In 2014, he finished his studies and received a BA from the University of Los Andes, Merida in Venezuela. In his years as a student, he won an award in the VIII Biennial of Visual Arts at the University of Los Andes 2012, in the form of three-dimensional, as he participated consecutively in different halls and art biennials nationwide, getting a I Cándido Millán Award 2014 Visual Arts Biennial city of Coro. Falcón - Venezuela.
His most recent exhibition, entitled Echoes, came about from scientific experimentation with the petrographic microscope. As part of this experiment, rocks and minerals were analysed, and drawing from that observation, elements such as lines, colors, reliefs, textures and transparencies have been carried out in a two-dimensional and three-dimensional visual language. In these works, it is not the stone that is literally being represented, but what it resonated through scientific experimentation.
Style and Inspiration
Currently, the proposal is based on abstract art, from the study of rocks and minerals, through understanding the geological environment, where meaningful drawing and color and other elements blend, resembling maps. Hydrography and topography of territories are realized, managing to set a work autonomous, i.e. that the receptor is linked with organic and inorganic minerals, and with man, the landscape, things of nature, science or just with combinations of colors seeking to express their inner needs. This allows the connection of people through the work to an emotional resonance, i.e. resonance with certain kinds of harmonies inherent in real world accidents.
It also explores the field of sculpture and open to installation art.
