Working with these objects comes with a lot of risk; once you’ve cut them up there is no undo button. Even then, she still prefers it over digital collage making as there is a rarity to the pieces she collects. They add grit, texture, and personality to an otherwise flat collage. Every image or object she selects for each piece has its own story. In a way, she combines these stories, and transforms them into their own.
We hung out with Sasha at her place to discuss work, her friends’ support in her art, and the importance of risk in making collages.
