Is She a New Type of Superhero?

Comic Portrait painting by Sandra Chevrier 2

Canadian French artist Sandra Chevrier has continued to work on a series titled “Le Cage.” She collages and paints these unusual portraits on canvases, and the use of comic book imagery over the faces definitely leaves most spectators intrigued. The message behind her art is for women to find freedom from society’s imprisoning standards—i.e. from how they should look, to the type of jobs they should do.
