Alexandre Masino's Geological Radiance opens on Saturday, December 1st and runs through January 19th, 2013.
Alexandre Masino’s paintings border between mimesis and invention; responding to observed reality, memory and imaginative perception. The transition between what is real, remembered or imagined creates a fertile territory for the artist, fully understanding that art derives from art. The journey undertaken by the artist is not only a journey through the world but beyond time. The continent that we travel is the continent of art where human history and experience are fundamental.

Masino’s approach is foremost pictorial and is deeply rooted in the constant metamorphosis inherent to the physical act of looking. A painting must offer many different realities according to the distance from which it is viewed and the ambient lighting hitting the surface. Many painters have evoked this very instant when the painting “rises”, when it “happens” and suddenly takes all its meaning. In Masino’s work this moment may only happen when one takes the time to look and place the subject in relation with the background, the light with the shadows, the image and the surface, and all these elements in relation with the complete picture.
