Artist Alexandra Masson has created a new world of images through digitally manipulated photos which represent a multiplicity of encounters and emotions, suggesting dreams, repetitiveness and uncertainty but also encounters of a unique and, who knows, maybe possible nature. The ghosts the members of the family have seen, or the possibilities of astral traveling… an expansive web of involuntary mysteries that exist in life. The artist’s interpretation becomes a reflection of reality, of that which is occult or not, that which has been transformed and no longer has any resemblance to what it was originally, just as the original plan one has of one’s life and the manner in which external events influence and modify that plan, rendering it obsolete at times and completely different from what one expected to be and end up with, and live to begin with. These photos invite the spectator to conduct an exercise of interpretation, reflection and even of imagination, where on occasion a dialogue between the object and the subject may be established. The potentialities of the works of art exist insofar as each one of them represents a vehicle that conveys a message, where every element they possess is filled of significances and contains the expression of the life of the artist reflected in the paths she has travelled, willfully - or not.
