Sensitivity as Strength in Dreamy Paintings by Alexandra Levasseur

Alexandra Levasseur - Le passage, cover 2

Dreaming women endure the elements of nature and life in the otherworldly paintings of Montreal-based artist Alexandra Levasseur. By abstracting rose gardens and Canada’s boreal forests in thick, pastel-hued layers of paint, Levasseur translates her landscapes into a vision of feminine solitude and introspection. There is a sense of surrender and strength as they melt into their surroundings, finding context, alienation, and comfort in the overwhelming power of the wilderness. Their quiet and often pained expressions reveal an emotional connection between their bodies and the environments that surround them.
