Taos native Sasha vom Dorp is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist. Born in 1972, he started making art at an early age and has been exhibiting his work since 1992.
His work explores the rich territory invisibly folded into the most common elements before us. Through painting, kinetic sculpture, photography, and interactive video installations, he has explored elemental transactions.
For the last twenty years, Sasha has mined a rich vein of work at the intersection of light, water, and sound, creating an original technical and artistic vernacular all his own. Deeply influence by the Light and Space school’s artistic tradition, Sasha’s work blends his deep love for the natural word and modern physics.
He utilizes a custom-designed and built system to support his explorations allowing him to see, and record sound waves interacting with sunlight and matter. From this, Sasha has created a series of interactive video installations and limited-edition prints which have been exhibited around the world and are held in private and corporate collections. His work has been featured on PBS and published in the >New York Times Art Section.
After living in the Philippines, Sweden, Mexico, Taiwan, and Los Angeles, he has returned to Taos where he works and lives with his wife and four children.
