Alexis Jang's quiet yet playful paintings are meditations on the subconscious and the relationships one has with themselves and others around. Using lots of blues, depicting mostly night scenes with often solitary figures, her work is an illustration of the longing that one might feel when life stops spinning and pulls one into more of a serene headspace.

The artist's penchant and life-long curiosity of a womanhood also plays a big part thematically in her work. Seemingly lost in thought or caressed by light, these women are quietly taking up space and demand to exist as they are instead of making themselves more palatable for the world to see.
