Alexis Nutini

reduction woodcuts in progress

Outside of editions on paper, Alexis Nutini uses stencil and collage to stain wood panels. His print informed process results in varnished paintings layered as silk screens or woodcuts. An amalgam of layers and the translation of print media to a singular object speaks to an examination of personal and cultural identity, specifically his Mexican-American roots and frequent travel back to his hometown.  Intertwining figures, inverted perspectives and radical scale shifts expose personal elements of his life and reveal his vision of a world without boundaries. Alexis received an MFA in Printmaking from the Tyler School of Art in 2005, is an alumni of St. Mary’s College of Maryland in St. Mary’s City, MD (BA in Fine Art, 2000) and is a 2001 Fulbright Fellow (Barcelona, Spain).  He currently teaches as an Adjunct Professor at the Tyler School of Art in the Printmaking department and has most recently completed two private commissions in New York City and Baltimore, MD.  His work has been shown both nationally and internationally over the past 12 years.
