Alexandra Levasseur: Embedded Optimism
The Montreal based artist will be presenting her solo show at Mirus Gallery.
Opening Reception: Friday, July 29th, 7pm - 10pm
Through painting, sculpture and animated films, Alexandra Levasseur intends to illustrate an ideal relationship between humans and nature. Her work is driven by a deep interest in, on the one hand, physics and biology and, on the other, mythology and the mystical interpretations that one can draw from nature, in order to expose the surrealism of the world. By adding sculpted elements to her paintings, she creates scenes in which the subjects are connected to their environment, emotionally embedded to the landscape. She is particularly interested in the physical imprint that is inscribed in the material as a testimony to the act of human creation. This exhibition entitled EMBEDDED OPTIMISM presents works that combine painting,drawing and ceramics on wood panels.
