Statement:

Alexandra Masson (1960) seeks beauty in the quotidian aspects of life, captures the aesthetics of evanescence and the blur and fast pace of modern, technology-driven life. She apprehends moments of having and having not/losing, commotions and shocks caused in her by external events, travelling as a metaphor of introspective displacements and exotic flora to translate them into a personal cosmovision of the transient nature of life, passing beauty and encounters/falling outs. Through direct untouched/modified digital photos and paintings, she privileges color and erases the limits of shape and form to express, codify, sublimate and re-channel her personal life-story. Heiress to two cultures by her Italian flight engineer and her Trinidadian English teacher mother and assimilated to a third one, the Crayford, Kent, England-born artist has lived in Madrid, Buenos Aires, San Fernando (Trinidad) and Caracas, Venezuela, where she currently resides and moves between art, photography, simultaneous interpretation and translation.
