Sasha C. Bokobza works according to reality, movement and emotion. When they are alive, her models are the people she meets whose silhouette, gait and body inspire her with a singular emotion. It is the inner movement that animates the bodies she questions through drawing and observation. The notion of snapshots is also important, often she captures her drawings in a few minutes in the subway, on a street corner, at a concert, she keeps her equipment always with her: markers filled with acrylic paints and brown paper.

The landscapes also inspire him, often urban or related to water, the sea. The emotion of a sky crossed by clouds, its reflection in a lake. Light plays a key role and Sasha C. Bokobza is committed to studying the color of the moment. Night ambiences are part of his field of investigation. Every being, landscape or object is constantly crossed by a sum of events, sometimes accidents, that transform its trajectory and form. They set themselves "in motion" in the continuity of this trajectory from their origin to the moment they meet them.

These intentionally and emotionally driven masses tell him stories that he must observe and interpret. Some of his sketches made on the motif give rise to large-format oil painting in the studio. At this point, it is a question of revisiting the memory, this time by using its own inner dimension, the oil allows this, unlike the quick sketch where Sasha C. Bokobza is more of a receiver.

His latest series, "L'homme au chapeau", is a series of portraits featuring men turning their backs more or less. The costume is important here, it is a question of studying further the area of the shoulder, neck and head highlighted by the cut of a jacket, a collar and the inclination of a hat. The hat is here the symbol of virility, transferring attributes of strength and power to these characters. The point of view places the viewer in the blind spot of these characters seen as silent cowboys.

In slight movement we don't know if they arrive or leave. From this angle we can perceive the mystery that surrounds them and that provokes both fear and attraction. It is her gaze as a woman who questions herself on this opaque patriarchal figure, without judgment, and in the observation of her own desire. The work takes place in the workshop and in two stages: a first phase of research with the model to find the angle, movement, drape, light and emotion that Sasha C. Bokobza fixes in sketches, a second phase without the model where she executes an oil in large format according to her studies.
