Alexis Rockman

"Pet Store"

October 2003 through April 2004

New York-based artist Alexis Rockman is recognized for his extraordinary paintings that imagine a future affected by pollution, global warming and genetic mutation.

For the fifth Project Wall, the Artspace featured Rockman’s narrative work "Pet Store." The work envisioned a futuristic pet store window with various anomalous creatures including a bioengineered white tiger with red racing stripes, a robotic dog and a unicorn displayed upon a spiraling shelf resembling a strand of DNA.
