“The real voyage of discovery consists of not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” Marcel Proust
Canadian pop surrealist artist, Alex Garant, stimulates our senses from fully experiencing to witnessing a state of mind. The queen of double vision brings us back to being aware where we can see a thought. The duplication effect in her portraitures emerges from symmetry and patterns yet leads us from coherence to a world without walls and restrictions. She stimulates our psyche to reach higher consciousness.
The deep symbolism of eyes in her imagery places our conventional and abstract human conditions side by side. Her art encourages us to see our strange responses to unfamiliar, to experience a situation and to re-examine our reactions.
