Illustration // Friday, April 11, 2014
'Disconcerting, touching, surreal, magnetic, Alexandra Levasseur’s work illustrates the complex, constantly changing spectrum of human emotions. This movement, which punctuates our lives, also represents transformation, changes in emotions, places, climates, etc. Her subjects experience extreme climactic conditions, yet resist and from their apparent vulnerability, a second face emerges, like strength, rage, or anxiety. We observe an inner transformation. We become voyeurs, witnesses of the birth of the best, or the worst of humanity. In either case, the result is captivating.'

The Surreal World of Fabien Mérelle

Illustration // Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Although Mérelle’s drawings appear at first sight realistic in their rendering, they in fact depict outworldly scenarios, unsettling situations and dream-like occurrences. Working on a minute scale against a sparse white background, Mérelle prompts the viewer to individually examine his figures and peer into a world, which from the outset may appear as our own, but upon closer inspection is a rendering of a personal streaming subconscious...'
