Sarah Rosenbloom

Visual Artist

Sarah Rosenbloom is a visual artist based out of Vancouver, BC, on the unneeded and ancestral territory of the xwməθkwəyə̓ m (Musqueam), Sḵwxw̱ ú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) nations. Sarah is a 25-year old multi-racial woman of colour of Trinidadian and Jewish descent, whose work is based in the philosophy of social justice and consciousness. Through her work, she explores her own personal relationship to the ongoing harms of colonization through embodied inquiry, such as physical pain, trauma, healing and transformation with an intuition-based psychedelic and neo-expressionistic style. She also explores debates and topics of consciousness, such as philosophy of consciousness and theories of ancient Indian philosophy, like illusionism vs. realism, metaphysics of time, and suffering/karma.

With 10 years of professional freelance art experience, Sarah has displayed her artwork in numerous festivals and exhibitions throughout Canada. In addition to her educational background in both Visual Arts and Psychology, she completed several advanced training courses in Visual Arts at the Ottawa School of Art. She also founded the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) painting club, where she honed her painting skills at weekly painting gatherings and created events and opportunities for other students to advance their painting pursuits.
