Artist Statement
Sasha Parfenova is a Boston based mixed media artist working primarily in collage. She received her MFA from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2015. Her work is inspired by the beauty and fragility of the natural world. She is particularly interested in the way in which 16th– and 17th century vanitas still-life paintings explore themes of transience and decay. Using intricately cut images of flora and fauna, hand-drawn or painted elements, found materials, and sources as varied as natural science magazines and botanical illustrations, she creates eclectic collages and installations.
