Every November 11th, Sasha-Loriene sets 11 goals and intentions to achieve during her new year. TEAL: To Evolve And Liberate (the color of growth and renewal), one of her goals set on November 11th, 2020, is a manifestation of ‘use your intuition to tell your story in your artwork.’ This exhibition represents the raw expression and growth of her artist practice through older works originally created 5-9 years prior and reimagined during her 30th year. Inspired by her childhood experiences and struggles with self-expression, verbal communication, and mental health, Sasha-Loriene highlights her creative release by transitioning from her classical figurative techniques to align more with her passion - abstract expression.
Sasha-Loriene incorporates 30 of her original works to continue the stories once created without intention or technique while still using their original names. In doing so, she depicts an intuitive process of composition, texture and swift movements to communicate the transformative experience of releasing self-doubt, rigidness, and the need to be perfect - feelings that once dominated her artist practice. The act of breaking free from a self-created box to exist in alignment is seen through her use of color psychology to symbolize specific emotions., Sasha-Loriene emphasizes this form of resistance to not only evoke healing and exploration within her audience, but to ultimately heal herself, as well.
