Star Maps
Alexandra Paperno

National Centre for Contemporary Art (NCCA). 2007

Alexandra Paperno’s series presents the motif of constellations in such painterly terms that we are confronted with paradoxes and antinomies. This is not unlike the obsessive repetitions in Jasper Johns’ paintings of the American flag, which evoke in the beholder similar impressions of a tension between motif and artistic technique (in the case, encaustic and collage). The changing history of our understanding of the universe continues to grip the popular imagination, and the painterly finesse of Paperno’s paintings visually develops these issues.
