Artist and author, Joe Fig will be visiting our store to give a presentation about the evolution of his artwork as well as the creative process of artists. After his visually based and dynamic presentation, Joe will be answering audience questions and signing copies of his books: Inside the Artist's Studio and Inside the Painter's Studio.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
What was your first artwork to receive recognition? What materials do you use, and how did they come into your practice? What advice would you give a young artist just starting out?
Joe Fig asked a wide range of celebrated artists these and many other questions during the illuminating studio visits documented in Inside the Artist's Studio--the follow-up to his acclaimed 2009 book, Inside the Painter's Studio. In this remarkable collection, twenty-four painters, video and mixed-media artists, sculptors, and photographers reveal highly idiosyncratic production tools and techniques, as well as quotidian habits and strategies for getting work done: the music they listen to; the hours they keep; and the relationships with galleries and curators, friends, family, and fellow artists that sustain them outside the studio.
