Biography from Alta Galleria:
As a multi-genre artist, Lexa Walsh works as collector, archivist, archaeologist, historian and voyeur.  Methods of pseudo-anthropology are essential to her work.  She manipulates lost, forgotten or discarded clothing, toys and artifacts as well as mass-produced, often 'feminine' items with obsessive processes of cutting, wax-dipping, sorting, bundling, packaging and sewing.  The resulting fetishes are both abject and seductive.

Many of her materials act as residue and artifact revealing what one has worn, used and washed, much like garbage proves what one has consumed.  Alluding to narratives and memories (personal, collective and unfamiliar), the work navigates a space between nostalgia and invention.

Lexa Walsh is a multi-genre artist.  She has lived, worked and shown extensively in Europe, Asia, and the Bay Area.  She recently returned from a four-month residency at Kio-A-Thau Artist Village in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

Her range of visual work, from very public, community-based projects (The Immortalization Project), to Cultural (mis)Interpretations in the form of installation, to intimate small sculpture, is supplemented and informed by her performance work and experimental music projects.
