The art of Sarah Davidson, our Featured Artist of September, folds words onto worlds, amalgamating natural, often botanical forms with unnatural figures. Bloops and blobs, if you will. I love ‘em.

That’s why I was so excited to create a mixed playlist based on Sarah’s work—there’s a lot to take inspiration from! I interpreted the figures in her piece, wonderland (2017), as being in the midst of a dance, perhaps one that follows the quickness of improvisational jazz and also the soft steps of an evening lullaby. Opposite ends of the spectrum, I know. But somehow, these abstract forms can keep each pace. They’re a good-natured bunch, I feel.

Love,
Sarah B.
