My work explores what it means to live in today’s society as a survivor of sexual violence as well as the obstacles we experience daily. My paintings celebrate femmes by highlighting their healing journey, and to fight the stigma that surrounds sexual violence and trauma, I tell mine and others’ stories of abuse and struggle with mental health. 

One in four girls will be molested before the age of eighteen, and as many as ninety percent will never speak about it. As someone who spent years in silence before speaking up, my artwork is the exact opposite of silent. I use bright colors, florals, and figurative elements to show the strength and beauty of the feminine spirit in efforts tohelp others feel empowered.

Despite the adversity, Femmes are resilient. We must continue to shareour stories, not only so we can work toward putting an end to these injustices, but so other survivors know they are not alone.

Lucas Rocheleau

Lucas Rocheleau is an artist living, working, painting and riding his bicycle in Atlanta, GA. He began painting in 2012 as a means to deal with the emotional trauma of his father going missing a few years prior but discovered that healing and introspection are always necessary, so he continues to paint. Lucas completed his BFA from Valdosta State University in the fall of 2015 with a focus on painting and drawing.

He describes his work as southern gothic pop art, as he uses his formative years in the Deep South as reference material to juxtapose with life in the city. He views painting as a meditation and tool for discovery; building up layers of paint and using whatever tools are necessary (fire included) to peel these layers back to create the composition. Oftentimes he blurs the lines between fine art, folk art, and illustration.
