At Galerie C.O.A, Fall 2017 is female. After the powerful Pussylluminati show by Miss Me which kicked off our year, we have the pleasure of presenting our very first solo exhibition of Sandra Chevrier’s work right here at her home gallery.

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. Despite all the colourful playfulness and the “CRASH! BAM! POW!,” superheroes are also fragile. After all, we are merely human, and we are entitled to our flaws and errors. 

Although her artwork is internationally acclaimed, Sandra Chevrier’s name remains relatively unknown in her home country. Sandra Chevrier has presented solo exhibitions in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Norway contemporary art galleries. She has participated in many art fairs across the world, notably in London, Miami and New York. Her artwork is currently on display at the Urban Nation Museum in Berlin, and in 2018, she will present an exhibition at the Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH), in California. 

Brasserie Les 2 Frères, Romeo’s Gin, and Rouge Gorge wines are generously sponsoring the vernissage, along with Panache tonic water.

When it comes to admiring artistic beauty, there is a widely acknowledged common ground. Definitions can only fade into the background and give way to the notion of perception. More than any other form, artistic beauty can leave its viewer at a loss for words. The artists taking part in this exhibit drew inspiration from the information overload we are subjected to on a daily basis. Beyond the state of contemplation brought on by these artworks, they cast a colourful reflection that is muted yet outlined, offering themselves to observation. Galerie C.O.A is also proud to announce their latest collaboration with Alexandra Levasseur and Zoltan Veevaete and to present their work, by way of this exhibit.
