Bix Archer (b. 1997) is a San Francisco-born and New York-based painter. Her recent work posits an intricate intersection between painting and the digital, taking as a starting point the sensory metaphors utilized by early computer users. Her paintings often utilize the landscape of the San Francisco Bay Area -- which is indelibly linked to the landscapes of the internet and capital -- as a referent of personal memory and cultural symbolism.
Bix Archer graduated from Yale University with a degree in Studio Art and Humanities. Archer's work has been supported by a grant from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation. Outside the studio, Bix has worked as an educator and public programmer at institutions including the Brooklyn Museum, the Shed, and the Yale University Art Gallery.
