Alexandra Levasseur was born in Shawinigan, QC, Canada and now lives and works in Montreal, QC, Canada. She earned a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Costa Rica.
Alexandra explains the work by saying, “My work portrays tormented female characters amidst landscapes that seems to be coming out of a dream. The central themes that I explore in my approach are love, fear, anguish and unrequited desire. In recent years, I am interested in both the solitude and the bipolarity of the existence of the human being, through the representation of memories. I question the relationship between physical comfort and peace of mind, and how the environment around us can affect this state of mind. Then, the word “relationship” struck me as key. The search of the “relationship” between things is what interests me. In this context, with “Chaos is a dancer,” I questioned the idea of relationships as the basic element of all that exists and life itself. I represented the planet earth as a single organism. Nothing is destroyed, everything is transformed.”
