Alex Garant Double-eyed Paintings Are Like A Window To The Soul

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 certainly conversation pieces as they are meant to engage the observers into an image investigation process and hopefully enlist their senses differently while doing so.
‘I always loved playing with symmetry and patterns. Even in my early works, I would create symmetrical images. One day I was sketching and drawing and exploring other ways to create symmetry and duplicate my sketches. One day it all came together as the vision I was searching for. To me, the vibrancy created by the double exposure is more than just an optical illusion, it represents life emerging from a structural setting’.
