חגית פלג רותם בגלובס על התערוכה Hagit Peleg Rotem at Globes magazine on my show


In the realms of fantasy: Aline Alagem in a solo show of hyper femininity in a masculin gaze, Hagit Peleg Rotem
Originally published in Globes Magazine, 10.03.2014

A series of hyper realist paintings that deal with body image are featured in Aline Alagem's new solo show

Aline alagem deals with hard questions of seduction and submition, conquest and impulse. In the center of her new show at Artstation gallery stands a series of hyper realist paintings that deal with body image and painted image, with the real and the phantasied.

Alagem paints a blunt sexusual scene in cotton candy pinks, and smears strokes of make up foundations, nail polish or lipstick, like those temptingly photographed in fashion magazines, attempting to present the “tangible core” of what the “right” feminine image is made from. To these, Alagem attaches a pink mountain landscape that compete on the viewer’s attention next to breast-hills and nipple-peaks.

In intensely vivid large scale paintings she suggests passion and ecstasy, heights of beauty and sensation, next to emptiness and lack of the longed catharsis. “I look for the balance between seduction and decryption” Alagem tells Globes. “It's important for me to maintain the viewers tension, the drive to keep exploring the work and get to a non-decrypted place”.

This is the key of understanding the logic in the non-logical, where a pack of flamingos hide a porn scene; a luxury Dior logo behind a galloping horse, perhaps as a symbol of bursting energy; or a Chanel logo framing a couple of glamorous blondes, that while their faces are concealed it is clear that they are in the middle of a sexual act- from a masculine fantasy point of view.
