Sandra Chevrier

BIO

加拿大當代藝術家珊卓·切弗瑞爾在成為藝術家之前,她是全職的單身母親。切弗瑞爾稱自己為「凝視收藏家」─最初她從不斷地繪製眼睛的素描入行。她認為凝視一個人的眼睛能夠看見他/她所有的情緒。至今她已創作了無數凝視著觀眾的女性,這些女性臉上經常覆蓋著英雄漫畫拼貼而成的面具。然而比起表面的這些英雄故事,更值得關注的是被覆蓋於它們之下的女性,她們被英雄主義社會強加的刻板印象和期望所束縛:必須美麗且完美。

Canadian contemporary artist Sandra Chevrier was a full-time single mother before becoming an artist. Chevrier called herself a "gaze collector," and she began her art career by drawing sketches of eyes. She thinks that gazing at a person's eyes can see all his/her emotions. To date, she has created countless female paintings that seemed like to stare at the audience. These women's faces are often covered with masks of heroic comics. However, compared to these heroic stories on the surface, more worthy of attention is the women who are covered under them. They are limited by the stereotypes and expectations imposed by the heroic society: they must be beautiful and perfect.
