The 17 ft long 9000 lb log was to be destroyed due to extensive fire damage but Sasha saw a different future for it. The history of the tree and the story of The Phoenix are as magical as the sculpture itself. The piece truly captures the spirit of any person's ability to rebuild.</p> <div id="navcontainervid"> <ul id="navlistvid"> <li> <a href="story.html">Read the Story</a><li> <li> <a href="ThePhoenixArises/Sasha Art/index.html">View the photojournal</a></li> <li><a href="images/StoryofthePhoenix.mov">View the video</a></li> </ul> </div> </div> <div id="maincontent"> <p>Internationally collected and formally trained in Europe, Alexandre Safonov paints and sculpts from a spiritual perspective all his own. In his studio in San Diego, California he carefully observes each angle and curve with regard to shadow and light as he works around every piece. Inspired by forms found in nature, he explores the interactions of curves, straight lines and volumes. In turn, the work provokes viewers to walk around it as well, whether in a gallery, a home or a public park.</p> <p>Bringing 25 years experience as an artist and working with clients, he is capable of creating pieces for any taste, suitable for home, garden, corporate and public settings. His work enlivens public and private collections throughout the world. His one-of-a-kind wooden sculptures are harmonious forms derived from the human body, clothing, and continuous lines evoking both mood and movement.</p> <p>Contact Alexandre Safonov directly 1 760 846 2276<br /> </p> </div> <br class="clearfloat" /> <div id="footer"> <ul id="navlistft"> <li id="active"><a href="index.html" id="current">HOME</a></li> <li><a href="Sashassculptures/index.html">More Sculptures</a></li> <li><a href="mailto:alexsfnv@yahoo.com">Contact</a></li> </ul> <span class="cprt">2015 Copyright Sashas Art</span><!-- end #footer --></div> <!-- end #container --></div> </body> </html>
