Alexandra’s painting “Blue Goddess” was inspired by her longtime fascination of
California, her passion for strong color which arises from deep blues of the night
sky and oceans to the gold of the stars, and the role of women in the history of
Golden star like this goddess who stand up, proud and strong, against the
elements, Nature and humans, and represent all the women and female warriors,
from the prehistoric time (like the Venus de Lespugue in Europe) to Queen
Calafia, who represent California’s origin and the new World.
This painting is the epiphany of Queen Califia, a mythical image which resonate in our reality." - Alexandra Pastorino
