From Monterroso Gallery:
“About the artist: Arielle Masson holds a Master of Fine Arts for the University of Houston. She has received numerous awards including the Core Fellowship from The Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Houston. She has extensively exhibited in Museums and Galleries in the US, France and Mexico, including a solo exhibition at the Museum of Anthropology of Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico. She currently teaches Painting and Drawing at the Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Houston.
About the Exhibition: The depth of the night sky offers the intriguing if not disquieting proposition of looking at planet Earth and humanity from the galactic center, redirecting the gaze from the periphery toward the familiar territory of our self-centered contemporary consciousness. Shifting the location of the gaze outside the boundaries of any society’s monolithic culture has such a profound impact that foreseeing its consequences would be difficult , just like it is impossible for us today to gauge the deeper transformative ramifications of globalization.The search departed from an open-minded spirit of inquiry and relies on the individual responsibility of consciousness. In these terms, the artistic endeavor operates as a necessary mapping of our multidimensional world. In painting, the geometry positions itself as a network of landmarks that guides the pilgrim in his journey toward the Center. The symbolic resonance of the sign, far from being a deferred presence, a token of absence, conjures invisible realms from which we all partake.”
