This video is from Matt Petty’s Art Adventures for the San Francisco Chronicle’s website: “I stopped by Alexis Mackenzie’s studio the other day and talked with her as she looked through old books and illustration plates. She was cutting out images of fish, butterflies, birds and wildflowers and fitting them together to form new types of plants. “I kind of see it as Pseudoscience, it’s almost like genetic engineering,” she explains, her scissors carefully maneuvering the edge of a butterfly.
“Her hybrid creations (are) on display as a part of a group show called Point of Paradox, at Hang Art Annex. She’s also a part of At the Movies, a group show at Giant Robot SF.”
