Sasha Fishman works primarily in sculptural modes of object-making and installation, she incorporates digital and photographic media into her works. She holds a BFA in Studio Art from The University of Texas at Austin.

Fishman’s installations, photographs and objects are comprised of artificial materials associated with tackiness and craft, assembled into organic bodies that follow their own systems of logic. Invasive, excessive and powerful in presence, these forms teeter on the boundary between being parasitic, alive, and other-worldly. These small and large-scale forms oscillate in the believability of their presence in the world, reading as bodies but ultimately lacking mobility. The systems operating within them are seemingly futile, rendering these forms playful with an underlying sadness/melancholia.
