As a means of expanding Co-Lab Project's programming into the digital realm, artist/curator Vladimir Mejia selects artists to participate in an Instagram hosted month-long residency. Artists are given full control of the @colabprojectsbitres Instagram account, and all images posted by the artist are categorized by hashtags representing the artist name in residency. Original concept by Sean Ripple.


Current Artist: Sarah Teasdale

Hello! My name is Sarah and I am a painter and mixed media artist. I am inspired by history, technology, dreams, and color. Before I decided to focus on painting, I considered math as a major in college. My subject matter has varied over the years. Lately, I have been creating artwork as a way to broaden my horizons, uplift my spirit and act as a reminder that there is always something greater at play than what is immediately evident. I am also interested in how technology can help us elevate our spirits and souls and reconnect with the world around us.

I started a series of geometric abstract paintings in 2014. I pulled visual imagery from our modern world- the digital age. Computers were ubiquitous. Pixels and code-like shapes began to appear in my paintings. My geometric abstract series is meant to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye and it is also meant to chronicle the digital age.
