Based in Montreal Sarah Leila is an artist who draws her inspiration from freedom. For the artist, flight prevents us from living fully, and through her drawings, Sara-Leila gets us acquainted with our fears.
“I am interested in my ties, the weights I carry, the choices I impose on myself. And by extension, I wonder about our social and personal constraints. Especially those that we believe are difficult to revoke. To ignite from the inside, to let oneself devastate a time, then the fire is extinguished, impermanent. We rebuild ourselves and make blueberries from the inside. Then we burn again and let it go. We’re free.”
