“One drawing a day
This project is a therapeutic investigation that involves 35 drawings made with acrylic painting and colored pencils on paper – 11X14” – each one done in one day aproximately, more or less consecutives.
My objective is to explore the spontaneity and inspiration that every morning gives me, either by environmental or emotional circumstances – states of mind, energy, desires, etc. This is a one-year project actually in process since October 2011. So far, it has shown my impressions
and perceptions of autumn and winter in Quebec leading me to illustrate, the evolution of the hibernation and laziness phenomenas that characterise my mood during these dark and cold months.
When the fall comes, the body is looking for physical comfort. The feminines figures represented find themselves surrounded with wool clothes, blankets and pillows. “Duvets” and walls are covered with colorfull flower patterns, simulating spring and summer life and the warmth of the nest where to hide until the sun comes again. In the winter days, the bathtub hot water remains the best way to console the skin and bones from this unkind climate.
The difficulty waking up in the morning, tendency to oversleep, anxiety, irritability seems to desapear as the first signs of the springtime show up. This diary of “seasonal emotional transmutations” will be continued during the spring and summer to come.”—Alexandra Levasseur
