Sasha’s paintings are small but mighty. They sometimes look like fictional sculptures dropped onto the vacuum of vibrant color. Other times they’re like a clutter of found objects. In either case, disparate objects disappear in favor of a whole situation of motion and interaction, tinted with Sasha’s faith in the possibility of true harmony.
Sasha Hallock is a contemporary abstract painter living and working in Brooklyn, New York. With an Iranian father and American mother, Hallock’s paintings speak to this “bringing together” of disparate pieces to create an object of beauty. Geometric forms, vibrant colors, odd textures and sculptural landscapes populate Hallock’s paintings. Fueled by the joy of seeing two objects connect, each painting is the result of meticulous building, one line, shape, and color in relationship with the next. Hallock utilizes a unique abstract language to tap into themes of play, joy and faith. A graduate of SUNY New Paltz with a concentration in painting and drawing, Hallock has participated in group shows in New York City, Kansas City, and Fort Collins, Colorado.
