"Cages And The Void of Colors"
Sandra Chevrier's inaugural solo exhibition showcases 16 portraits knows as "The Cages" series. She mergers comic book character into hyperrealistic portraits. These paintings speak to the internal conflict within us all, as well as our superhero potential.
Setting the scene for the exhibition, Chevrier stated the following about our collective new normal and her inspirations behind the new body of work, “Beneath the quiet calm of the end of the world; an army of humans are pacing through their apartments. As in the past, it is a life in black and white where one hides from the plague and the war. In some kind of Apocalypse, between one world and the next; we hold still, we stand strong. We are inexperienced warriors waiting on a shapeless future in a shapeless present. We can only hope for a new chapter, a better one and we are ready to fight for it. Let’s look outside ourselves. We’ve been sitting in a void of colors for way too long.”
