Sandra Chevrier currently lives in Montreal, Quebec. She describes herself as a gaze collector, an idea chaser and a full time single mom. The series ‘’Super Heroes Cages’’ obtained a worldwide success. The series is about women trying to find freedom from society’s twisted preconceptions of what a woman should or shouldn’t be. These women encased in these cages of brash imposing paint or comic books that mask their very person symbolize the struggle that women go through with having these false expectations of beauty and perfection, as well as the limitations society places on women, corrupting what truly is beautiful by placing women in these prisons of identity. By doing so, society is asking them to become superheroes. Through them, the artist exposes the limitations within our world, our self-imposed expectations and the cages we have allowed to bar us from fullness of life’s experience. Sandra uses collage or loose and heavy textures of paint that make the woman seem to be emerging from the surreal world within the canvas. Sandra's work is shown in Canada as well as in the United States, United Kingdom, Europe and Asia, and her works are now in the hands of collectors throughout the globe.
