In her works, Alexia’s creation enhances private stories where subjects, anonymous or not, reflect her personal universe. They are treated in the style of icons, using gold leaf technique. It generates a special feeling, like an aura, that highlights the subjects. It allows the artist to reintegrate them into society and history, sanctifying them.
