Cages: new art series by Sandra Chevrier

Cages, the new series from self-taught Canadian artist Sandra Chevrier, is about the never-ending struggle with conventions, society and expectations. Women all over the world have to face society´s twisted and artificially created preconceptions of being beautiful and perfect. Chevrier´s approach is to make this inner struggle visible and perceivable. By using heavy textures of paint, her women seem to liberate themselves from the two-dimensionality of the canvas, stepping into the real world and shifting from imagination to reality by freeing their minds.


About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
