Montreal-based painter Sandra Chevrier has long been exploring the role of the heroine in pop-culture. Those ideas, manifested as strong female faces with superhero details making the bulk of the facial structure, also began to be explorations in the role of women in art. There was strength but also a conversation of absence that she was challenging. Years into her career, Chevrier has prepped some of her best works for Cages and the Fallen Flags, a new solo show on view at Mirus Gallery in Denver from October 18—December 21, 2019. Below, Maia Jackson wrote a mini-essay on Chevrier’s work, highlighting some of the concepts that went into Cages.
