A New York-based artist whose work is in numerous public collections, including the Brooklyn Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and The Guggenheim, Rockman collaborated with Oscar-winning director Ang Lee from 2009–2019 on the film Life of Pi, serving as an “inspirational artist.” His paintings envision future landscapes affected by climate change. Damiani is set to publish his forthcoming monograph, Alexis Rockman: Works on Paper, in 2020.
