Sasha Reid is a young sculptor living and working by the ocean in Sydney. He is interested in our reactions to the landscape and the history of our interactions with it – the way we have used tools to change and remake the environment.

In 2000 Sasha won the Central Goldfields Sculptured – Young Sculptor Award, he has appeared in Sculpture by the Sea 2000, 2002, 2004–07 and made the final selection of the Royal Blind Society’s Tactile Sculpture Prize. Sasha has had solo shows in 2002, 2003 and 2004. Public commissions include Memorial to the Surf Life Saver, 2007; Child Migrant Memorial, National Maritime Museum, Sydney, 2006; and Memorial to the Victims of the Bali Bombings, Coogee, 2003.
