"The images are compelling, and the advice Fig's subjects offer is not just for young artists but is surprisingly universal." -Boston Globe
"What Inside the Artist's Studio reveals about the artists themselves - their childhood, education, domestic life, and career - is refreshingly candid and down-to-earth. But it isn't just the interviews that make this an intriguing book, and it isn't just the photographs that, rather than depicting the artists at work, are focused more on the interiors of their studios. Rather, it's Fig's creative responses to each studio visit - catalysts for his own artistic practice." -Santa Fe New Mexican
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 gallerists and curators, friends, family, and fellow artists that sustain them outside the studio.
