Since her beginnings in the mid-1990s, Alexandra Duprez has developed an intuitive practice of drawing and painting, drawing her inspiration from art brut and the primitive arts.
In her images, she creates a phantasmagorical universe close to a dream, populated by disturbing creatures, of entangled forms and multiplied eyes, between figuration and abstraction.
At the center of her work is the human body, a body that splits, erases and transforms itself, to become a being in constant mutation, half animal, half vegetable. By adding and covering, layer after layer, the artist creates what she calls “shreds of images”, fragments of a constantly reinvented history, with abundant ramifications.
