Alexandra Levasseur is a Montreal based artist. Her creations explore the interconnected relationship between humans and the natural world. She says that her work is a “therapeutic exercise of the conception of paradise”, and a place where everything is amplified by magic. Levasseur creates ethereal landscapes that transport the viewer to an enigmatic dreamland. The artist works with acrylics, ceramics, pencils, and pastels. Her ceramic figures are inspired by the images she paints: one form influencing the other. Levasseur explores new dimensions in her animated films. The artist says she enjoys exploring the boundaries between dynamic and static work, and uses her brain like a “sculptor” to bring her animations to life.
