Alexi Marshall is an artist who works in print, fabric, drawing and embroidery, investigating themes of spirituality, sexuality and womanhood. Linocut printing is a recurring medium in Marshall’s practice. These prints and drawings convey a temporality, as lines, bodies and worlds fold into each other to create theatrical tableaux and morality plays, populated by saints and sinners. A certain kind of violence is projected as the images are scratched and carved into the medium in these labour intensive, detailed carvings.
Having graduated from the Slade School of Art in 2018, Marshall now lives and works in London. She has exhibited in group shows in London such as Figurative Now (Daniel Benjamin Gallery), Young Gods (Charlie Smith London) and was part of Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018.
