galerie c.o.a | montreal

As of October 19th, 2017, Quebec artist Sandra Chevrier will present “The Cages; Between the Bars”, a solo exhibition of her most recent work, at Galerie C.O.A. The cage motif is at the heart of Sandra Chevrier’s œuvre. Made of comic book fragments which the artist collages onto her models’ faces, the cages act as masks, but also allow to peer inside and observe what they conceal. Beneath the pop facture and the flashy colours, the precision and lustre of her portraits, Chevrier’s masked models (all from Montreal) act like prisms and allow us to peer at the dance between power and fragility; between liberty and captivity…

«Now that we are closing the exhibition, how would you like to vandalize it?» That’s basically what Yasha Young said to three artists this week in Berlin. Of course Hera from Herakut said yes, having caught a few tags in her career. So did Mimi Scholz and Sandra Chevrier, studio artists who have done some work on the street and jumped at the idea – Chevrier actually flew from Montreal just to fool around with these sexy portraits. Together, the three have made a beautifully tattooed and magic mess of all of your favorite iconic photographs by Mario Testino in this exhibition called “Undressed”…

chevrier x whatson | norway

A Nuart favourite and one of Norway’s leading stencil artists, Martin Whatson, cleverly combines the aesthetics of abstract graffiti and stencil art. His work brings together three often disparate aspects of visual culture, that of Classical Fine art, Graffiti and Street Art. Martin merges them together in a manner that is reminiscent of contemporary “mash ups”, but with a finesse and lightness of touch often missing from more activist based stencil work and its musical “mash up” counterpart. His distinctive urban scenes have brought him worldwide acclaim and an international band of fans and followers…

Thinkspace is pleased to present new works by Sandra Chevrier in the gallery’s first solo exhibition for the Canadian artist, The Cages; and the Reading Rooms of their Lives. Based in Montréal, Chevrier creates mixed media works that combine sensuously rendered portraits of women with painted and collaged comic book overlays of superheroes. Manifold graphic segments and tear aways are used to obscure the facial features and bodies of her subjects partially…

We last checked in with Sandra Chevrier all the way back in 2013, the Montreal-based artist teaming up with fellow comic book obsessive Lora Zombie for a Californian exhibition that was a whole lot more interesting than Batman v Superman. It’s all the way over to Hong Kong this time, the well-travelled artist on the cusp of a run of shows that will take in London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and plenty more…

jonathan levine gallery presents trifecta | new york

Female figures have always been part of modern and contemporary artworks. And, representing female figures has been always perceived without any prejudices, no matter what art medium is been used. However, when we talk about female artists, the situation is quite different. During the 20th century, it wasn’t easy for female artists to make a breakthrough in the mainstream contemporary art (including street art), due to many reasons – one of them being patriarchal societies…

reed projects | norway

Reed Projects Gallery presents their second Off Site event of the year – ‘Les Cages; Beneath The Skin’, an exhibition of new works by Sandra Chevrier. In her series ‘Les Cages’, Sandra Chevrier challenges the false ideals of beauty and perfection that women are forced to face in today’s society, as they are constantly told what they should or shouldn’t be. This pressure acts like a cage, as a prison of identity, and women are often expected to take on the role of superheroes. She expresses this strong inner struggle by covering the faces of her female characters with comics scenes, while highlighting their powerful gaze…

mirus gallery | san francisco

At first glance, the work of Sandra Chevrier tantalizes and threatens to tame with its utter surface seduction; almost luring one into a saccharine sweet comic-infused sleep before demanding your attention with the undulating force of it’s deeper message. Consumed in a moment by the undeniable beauty of Chevrier’s work, a closer inspection yields the menace of superficial illusion, revealing, in a sense, the darker truth at the heart of the work…

Sandra Chevrier currently lives in Montreal, Quebec. She is a gaze collector, an idea chaser and a full time single mom.

Working in a home studio, Sandra produces her work at a full-time scale, aggressively pursuing a common thread until it is worn away, leaving her to begin on a new path…
