Léa Rivière is a French artist who uses a wide variety of mediums (oil, charcoal,pen and ink) to achieve an effect that is at once remote and aged and yet at the same time modern and contemporary. Her work is full of symbolism using horses, fish, letter like shapes and people to evoke an imaginary world of a different age. Her work is showed extensively, and you can see more if it here, here, and at her webpage.
