Studio as psychosis
I have already had quite a few studios in my time. Some grand, some sharing, some depressing and even one which would appear when my bed was propped up on the wall first thing in the morning.
Everyone’s creative sweet spots are different -its difficult to force good results where you don’t work well, even when you are seemingly happier or cosier in one spot. The British painter Francis Bacon has one of the most documented and interesting studios of recent times, once he had made a enough money as an artist he moved to a larger studio, but abruptly found he couldn’t work in it and moved back to the old studio (which could really only accommodate one large canvas at a time even though he worked largely on diptychs).
So often, I see my studio as a psychosis.
I will show studio life periodically here, and can be found in the ‘Studio’ category. It goes without saying others’ studio’s should be linked/forwarded for exposure..
