Sasha Pierce's work employs geometric strategies, where the action of tessellating paint results in a trompe l'oeil effect as the paint appears textile-like. This deception continues with her manipulation of contrast and colour to establish vanishing points. Carefully articulated, Pierce capitalizes on both the physically of oil paint as material and its ability to transform two dimensional space into three dimensions.
