Explosions Of Color Sarah Moli Newton Applebaum

Ever since interviewing Chandra Bocci way back when, I’ve been looking for another 3D artist that utilized shapes and textures in a way that felt equally powerful to me. I haven’t really found one… until today, with the work of Sarah Applebaum!

By weaving fabric into patterns that are just bursting with color and texture and richness, she transforms rooms (and camouflaged people hidden within them) into caves that would probably make some people claustrophobic by their sheer intensity. I imagine that stepping into a space given the Applebaum treatment would turn even the most reserved of art critics into a somewhat synesthesic fellow or madam.

Anyway, this is art that makes me glow with delight. Giddy.

Vivian Hua 華婷婷 is a writer, filmmaker, and organizer. As the Executive Director of Northwest Film Forum in Seattle and Editor-in-Chief of the interdisciplinary arts publication, REDEFINE, much of her work unifies her metaphysical interests with her belief that art can positively transform the self and society. She regularly shares human-centered stories through her storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE! In 2020, she will [hopefully] begin production on a comedic Asian-American series entitled Reckless Spirits.

Ask Vivian about MARSHMALLOWS, cuz she's gross... and being tips for being frugal while nomading!
