The Thompson Landry Gallery is excited to welcome Virginie Bocaert, for her third solo exhibition in Toronto. Body and Soul is comprised of works from her eagerly anticipated new series which exudes deep emotions through her beautifully expressive style. Bocaert’s work encapsulates feminine sensuality exploring, the intimate link between our physical body and the spiritual nature of the soul.
Virginie Bocaert’s emotionally inspired paintings are like breathlessly diving into the figures that emerge from the depths of her backgrounds. In her latest series, each work exudes a raw passion. Bocaert’s style has evolved by her use of both photography and paint on her canvases with the figures are becoming much more developed, and taking on a strong personality of their own.
