Alexandra Levasseur was born in Quebec, Canada, and, after time in Costa Rica and Spain studying Art & Design and working as an illustrator, she returned to Canada and now lives and works in Montreal. Her work is widely exhibited internationally and has been featured in such publications as Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, and Booooooom. Drawing heavily on classical, figural stylization as well as the dreamlike territory of Surrealism, Levasseur presents scenes in which subject and environment meld and interact. Representing the realm of the mind more than the tangible world, the artist layers and interchanges stonelike, statuesque figures with active, morphing forms, filling the space between and around these bodies with rich texture, flora, and dynamic, non-objective marks.
