Dealing with a metamorphosis of secondary imagery; this exhibition manifests works which are both a homage and mischievous intervention. The artist has playfully interacted with images and objects, which are then re-presented, extended and mediated; culminating in new interpretations.


Upstairs at Gallery 286 is a traditional Victorian living room with rich red walls, pictures rails and elaborate mouldings. Within this space Sasha will hang works from her 'Taking Liberties with the Masters' , series; where she intervenes with oil paint on bookpages and postcards of Old Master Paintings;  which are then re-presented in antique frames. The artists Sasha chooses to 'intervene' with are all artists she admires for their technical skill and craft. She likes to remove or cloak the faces and hands of the portraits and instead concentrate on extending/subverting the folds of cloth, lacy ruffs or ribbons and create new images with new connotations.

Downstairs the space is a contemporary white walled gallery space; within which  will be inhabited by a 'room construction' formed from old stretcher frames; which once lit will create a further shadow room. The visual allusion of frames joined together references the 'Salon Hangs' , when paintings were hung floor to ceiling in the Academies.
