Sorry but we have recently sold our last piece of art by Sandra Chevrier, however we should have more arriving soon. If you are after a specific piece by Sandra, drop your details in the contact form and let us know what you are after.
Sandra Chevrier is a Canadian contemporary / pop urban artist, known for her masterfully detailed portraiture of women from The Cages series.
Sandra likes to describe herself as a “gaze collector” and her work; a dichotomy or a dance between power and fragility, freedom and captivity, the poison and the cure. Her work is exhibited internationally and her artworks are now in the collections of art collectors all over the world.
Sandra produces work ranging over vastly fluctuating emotional enigmas and concepts exposing the limitations of our world; our self-imposed expectations and the cages we have allowed to bar us from the fullness of life’s experience. Sandra Chevrier's portraits are quite literally torn between the fantastical heroics and iconography of comic books and the harsher underlying tragedy of oppressed female identity and the exposed superficial illusion it conveys.
In the greater body of Chevrier's work, the images used within the 'cages' range from scenes of conflict, triumph and defeat. They also represent the social limitations, which corrupt what truly is beautiful, and lock women into prisons of highly-codified and narrow identities. By doing so, they are asked to become nothing short of superheroines.
