Alex Garant’s “Double Eyes” paintings mess with my head in an awesome way and I love them.
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.
Her oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait techniques.
Garant finds inspiration in early ink printing, vintage pop surrealism, baroque tapestries and retro kitsch.
She uses patterns, duplication of elements, symmetry and image superposition as a way to engage the viewer into her imagery.
