This post is briefly looking at the interior of some artist studios miscellaneously collected. Avoiding famous artist studio for now (mine is in there too). After a quick look at these photographs it becomes more obvious how the studio can affect the way the work looks or turns out. Here is the home studio, bedroom studio, garage studio, art school studio, established artist studio and emerging artist studio.
Before taking a photo of your studio, please don’t go and have a good spring clean up. These are the work spaces that interested parties might be looking carefully at, not only to see the imagined ‘lifestyle’ of the artist, but to see into their tricks of the trade, and possible secrets of alchemy. Maybe to jump a few hurdles which took the artist’s themselves years to discover! Such as the use of plates, plastic cups and tin cans to mix paint on, wax pencils, rags, types of paint and brushes used.. or seeing walls covered in a collection of their own work to gauge new work against, or a plethora of image source materials collected for direct use or inspiration, versus the stark clean studio and surfaces you could eat off of.
While looking for these studio images, seems the best images are of those which show a few personal working methods and set-ups. The secrets or surprises are the practices we want to know.
