Alex Garant

Alex Garant is a painter that specialises in double vision. That is, in pretty much all of her work you will find at least two pairs of eyes. This disjointed, pop-surreal nature makes her work so captivating. When I was studying cinema at university, we made a surrealism film where we made use of layering shots and had several scenes where eyes (and other things) would float out of the character, sometimes floating back into place, sometimes out of shot. It looked pretty cool and helped to reimagine reality and we got an A for the final work! I imagine Garant would like the film and a little escapism from the daily drag. I’ve chosen a few pieces from her portfolio that I like, but you can see more here.
