Artwork of the Day: The Moon, Sasha Khudyakova
Alexandra “Sasha” Khudyakova comes to Artexpo from the venerable tradition of Russian dollmaking. A professional dollmaker since 1992, she works with porcelain as well as Cernit, Flumo and Fimo polymer clays. Sasha pushes herself to continually explore innovative ideas, techniques and materials. She used metallized porcelain to create the elegant and ethereal figure in “The Moon,” garlanding her with delicate silver chains and rings to evoke the faraway delicacy of moonlight.
Born in 1970 in Moscow, Sasha graduated from Moscow Stroganov State Art-Industrial University. In addition to being President of the Doll Artists Association, Sasha is a member of the Moscow Union of Artists and the International Artists Union of Russia (TSHR) (IFA), where she is Deputy Chairman of the Section of Art Dolls. Sasha has also been a curator of ART DOLL.
Sasha’s unique dolls are held in private collections in Germany, Holland, Israel, Italy, USA and the Museum of Moscow History in Russia.
Sasha will be represented by Gallery of Elena Gromova of Toronto at Artexpo New York 2011. We look forward to hosting her. For more information on Sasha Khudyakova, please visit the Gallery of Elena Gromova website.
