“Alexandra Levasseur, in Montreal. Known for her work, that combines colored pencils on paper and experimentation with oil on wood panels. Levasseur continues her exploration of female figures in surreal and vivid landscapes, with the need to examine the relationship of the human beings with nature. ” (Widewall)
“This time, Levasseur speaks about her exhibition Puzzle as representing a mind game, which questions the origin of life and usefulness and destiny of human intelligence.” This Puzzle idea can be expand into my upcoming presentation format for the tile system of abstracted and dynamic works. Each line-work and shapes can be pre-planned and re-assemble to create other alternatives, to reveal the order and disorderness of the art, and similarly consisting Levasseur’s idea of the mind game, re-interpreting different rearrangement and interactive act of the work.” -+- I like this concept to push in my work as it opens mystery in representational / portraiture paintings.
+ Levasseeur uses fabric patterns and female figures to show a sense of domestic setting, yet abstract in a way that is flatten with painterly paint, vacant juxtaposition, blurring the pictorial plane, and definite of space, which reflects an internal mental state or dreamy state… I really like the way she incorporates colour that seems pearl-like and iridescent to depict skin tone.
