Sandra Chevrier creates strange and dramatic portraits by adding comic book collages to watercolored portrait features. Superman, Wonder Woman and the Green Lantern fly and punch in the place of the portraits' eyes, noses and mouths.Chevrier's mixed media portraits are compelling and deceptively simple in their composition. Placed in a fresh context, tearful faces and superhero insignias take on a new visual significance. Each piece seems to carry its own meaning, some reflecting powerful emotions or symbols of strength, while others seem simply to depict wild-haired women immersed in their own pop cultural fantasies.
