Alex Garant - Canadian Queen of Double Eyes

Alex Garant studied visual arts at Notre Dame De Foy College just outside Quebec City. After graduating in 2001, she ultimately settled in Toronto, Canada. She decided to truly commit to her passion for Arts after suffering from a heart attack in 2012, changing forever how she would see the world.

Her alla prima oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait techniques. Garant  uses patterns, duplication of elements,  symmetry and image superposition as key elements of her imagery. Alex Garant’s paintings are not far from a perfect optical illusion: her protagonists trying to escape themselves, almost possessed by a distinct version of their own individuality, an exorcism of the soul.
