Cages, the new series from self-taught Canadian artist Sandra Chevrier, is about the never-ending struggle with conventions, society and expectations. Women all over the world have to face society´s twisted and artificially created preconceptions of being beautiful and perfect. Chevrier’s approach is to make this inner struggle visible and perceivable. By using heavy textures of paint, her women seem to liberate themselves from the two-dimensionality of the canvas, stepping into the real world and shifting from imagination to reality by freeing their minds.

Considering my tendency to draw women over men, this is useful.
helloooooo useful poses
