In almost twenty years of her artistic career, Sasha Zhitneva amassed a truly diverse body of work. Glass always has been the main reference medium she probed and explored through various techniques and methods many of which were original to her.
Zhitneva’s glass art ranges from 15′ tall stained glass windows to 15″ fused panels resembling minute watercolor sketches, from cascading chandeliers to intricately painted portraits, not to mention her cast glass rings and kiln-formed necklaces. Changing scale, moving from fusible glass to antiques mouth-blown or glass that comes from recycled jars presents her with endless possibilities.
Lately, her work extended into a realm of other media, namely discarded plastic. Driven by the urge to respond to social, cultural, and environmental issues she feels passionate about, she created works on both large and intimate scale some of which is shown here in reFused gallery.
