"Through painting, sculpture and animated films, I illustrate an ideal relationship between humans and nature. My work is inspired by Physics, Biology and Mythology, to expose the surrealism of the world. Lately, the integration of fired clay into my practice allows me to shape works that will last over time while being in direct contact with the earth. I am particularly interested in the physical imprint that is inscribed in matter as a testimony to the act of human creation." Alexandra Levasseur
