Biographical Note

A native Californian, Alexis Smith (born Patricia Anne Smith) is well-known for her mixed-media collages. While growing up she read books and wrote plays. Her interest in literature is evident in some of her early collages where she combined objects and images with textual passages from John Steinbeck, Sinclair Lewis, and Nathaniel West. She graduated from the University of California, Irvine in 1970 and her first installation was presented in 1972 at the Pasadena Art Museum. Over the years her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, California, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Lawrence Rubin Greenberg Van Doren Fine Art Gallery in New York, among others.
