We feel so familiar with the view of the stars that we are baffled by the impoverished iconography of those nightly epiphanies in modern times. If a star still lit the way to Bethlehem in the Adoration of the Magi, the night sky has grown dimmer in the era of secularization. Our perception of a picture is shaped by its technical reproduction in photography and film - photography as a scientific vehicle, film as a projection of everything we associate with the conquest of the universe. It is no surprise, then, that the logo of a major Hollywood studio, Universal, offers a reverse view from space onto our world. Looking at the constellations in Alexandra Paperno's mixed media painting series, we do not know whether to focus on the intricate composition of the images or to be tempted by titles like Centaurus and Pictor to read a mythical, philosophical, and literary depth into them. The artistic technique is complex, elaborate, even though the overall impression is strangely tender and moving. Barriers of colour are built up, only to be torn to pieces. Powerful strokes form masses, resting somewhere in an undefined limbo. Opaque hues, leaden and earthy, are countered by deep blue areas.
