In many cases the work of Alex Frances shapes ideas that deal with painful situations, sickness, the weakness of the Human Being, decrepitude, fragility, the passage of time as reflected in one’s own body or that of another. Madres e hijas [Mothers and Daughters] is a triple portrait in which Frances revisits a theme widely found in the history of Art: the passage of time or the Ages of Man. This is a theme that has been treated by many artists, either directly or indirectly, such as in the Concert of Giorgione, or by Velazquez in his Card Players, in which each person represents a single age: the vigor of youth, the prudence of maturity, and the wisdom of old age. The passage of time is also manifested in the body, such as in Gustav Klimt’s Three Ages of Woman; this is made more than evident in the work that Frances presents in this exhibition. The three women do not look at each other, they look at us and are exposed to our gaze, our curiosity, and make us reflect on our own lives.
