Portrait of Lexygius Sanchez Calip

Artist Statement

I regard my work as gifts that underscore a reality—uncertainty, impermanence, and constant change. They are expressions of my liminal affairs with time, space, and place; romances that occur within thresholds that briefly open for me to pass through. They are lexes of delicate memories that are always ever fragile, for once one has gone, like life, it never comes back the same as it was.


While at Headlands

What appeals to me about the Headlands Graduate Fellowship Program is the ample time, space and the unrestricted aspect of encouraged exploration and experimentation it provides to art practitioners. I anticipate engaging in a dialogue with the place and the secrets and voices it hides and holds: a conversation that will determine the course of why, how, when, and where the work will temporarily live and reveal itself.
