In a world where arts education is very much steeped in white eurocentric references, Sasha is helping to usher in new reference points. Through her eyes and self portraiture, she enters new imagery into the Asian-American diaspora and forges new roads of representation. Memories and introspective reflection yield surrealist scenes of anxiety, trauma, and vulnerability as she navigates life in a biracial body.
In "Flirting with No One," Sasha continues her exploration of her body and new mediums in a time of isolation during COVID. Using pastels, she’s able to still render the same polished finish as her oil paintings.
