Montreal's Art world Super Hero
La Cage quand le crime ne paie pas
10 x 10 2014
Montreal artist Sandra Chevrier is turning heads in the art world with her empowering and original comic book inspired paintings. Using the elegance of the female figure, she combines street style art with a throw back to the classic 1950's pinup.
Her work takes her traveling over a broad range of fluctuating emotional enigmas and concepts that have set the standard of our modern communication. Sandra uses collage or loose and heavy textures of paint that make the woman seem to be emerging from the surreal world within the canvas. A dance between reality and imagination, truth and deception.
La Cage et le combat sans fin
Her series "cages" is about women trying to find freedom from society's twisted preconceptions of what a woman should or shouldn't be. These women encased in these cages of brash imposing paint or comic books that masks their very person symbolizes the struggle that women go through with having these false expectations of beauty and perfection as well as the limitations society places on women, corrupting what truly is beautiful by placing women in these prisons of identity. By doing so, society is asking them to become superheroes.
