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.
