Delight in Discovery
“Our souvenirs fade with the passage of time, but what is memory if not an act of the imagination!” – Lindsay Clarke
A warm and cozy atmosphere. Soft lights deliciously dimmed. Victorian furniture a bit dated in appearance. We are in painter Sophie Lévesque’s secret garden, where flourish souvenirs, sentiments and intimate visions to be shared. A place where time is dissected into an array of visual parcels. Here a bull’s-eye window, there a wobbly chair or table.
Sophie Lévesque juggles with the notions of space and the passing of time, as others do with shapes. In brief, she knows how to reconstruct a universe around objects with a particular and fascinating viewpoint.
