About the artist

Lex has been creating things and thinking critically about the world since he can remember, and now works across a range of artistic fields. He is currently producing abstract textile pieces, quirky watercolour and ink illustrations, and random sound bites that could be called music.

Human Becomings builds on Lex’s previous work, exhibitions, research and studio-based residency at Paper Mountain in 2016, exploring the impacts of gender and body on identity. While Lex’s work is somewhat autobiographical – focusing on their personal journey of gender transition and search for identities that fit – Lex is also fascinated by the way that others think about their own identity, particularly in terms of body and gender. This exhibition is designed for visitors to engage in that dialogue, to be questioned, challenged, and to encourage exploration of aspects of self that are too often thought of as static, or simply taken for granted.
