Wondrous creatures are gazing from the works of alexandfelix, casting a spell over the viewer which is here to stay. There are foreign worlds waiting to be discovered, filled with very well known objects of our everyday reality - although staged in an unexpected way beyond recognition, draped up as chequered costumes full of shapes and colours.
The insignia of power, the signs of their dreamland, are hanging from their bodies, stick to their skin, stand above head and shoulders. These queens have truly incorporated their sensual empire. Each for herself a proud queen, patron saint of ornaments, ruler over an empire of symbols, in which the viewer is invited to lose themselves.
"13 Queens" - that is an intriguing gallery of showily dressed dignitaries - definitely not from this world. The more one contemplates a picture the less obvious it becomes that there is actually a queen in its midst: the magic emanates from the details, from the objects used for purposes other than intended and their creative reinterpretation - from the desire to find even more unexpected details.
