Haven Gallery is pleased to present "Restless", a solo exhibition of new work by Chicago based artist Sasha Ira. "Restless" is Ira's second solo show at Haven Gallery and will include graphite drawings and oil/acrylic paintings. "Restless" is a continued exploration of the female form in its most sensual and intimate moments.
Themes of transition and personal growth are articulated in Ira's refined technique and exquisitely emotional female sitters.
Thought, wonder, and the beauty in the sorrow are readily apparent while layers of complex emotion and multifaceted thinking are demonstrated through Ira's use of gestural paint application, quintessential binding elements and an ethereal balance between highly rendered detail amidst the suggestive ghost of what once was or will be.
