On the Carpet:

Surreal paintings by Alex Garant


Ever feel vaguely… not right?

People often offer me vague complaints about their inner lives. Such experiences can be difficult to decribe!

Maybe these pictures show one example…

About

Queen of  Double Eyes, Alex Garant studied visual arts at Notre-Dame–De-Foy College just outside Quebec City. After graduating in 2001, she ultimately settled in Toronto, Canada.

Her oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait techniques.

Garant finds inspiration in early ink printing, vintage pop surrealism, baroque tapestries and retro kitsch.

She uses patterns, duplication of elements,  symmetry and image superposition as a way to engage the viewer into her imagery.

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!

I love your comments! Please, take a moment & share.
