Artists at work

I love looking at other artists at work in their studio. When creating, artists are so caught up in the moment that all else falls away and it's often reflected in their studio photos. Here are some of my favorites.

Louise Bourgeois,1967 in her Italian studio.
There are some funny studio pictures of Bourgeois, I imagine she was quite a character.

Eva Hesse in her studio.
 Eva's studios are full of fascinating details. I wish I could walk through them.

Kiki Smith at work.
Kiki's home is her studio, there is no separation. She breathes art and it shows.


Lenore Tawney at work.
I love this one of Tawney. She looks seriously frustrated with this piece. We've all been there!
John Cage manipulating a piano.
I'm reading an amazing book about John Cage called Begin Again by Kenneth Silverman. I really see him more as an artist than a musician.

Shiela Hicks using one of her handmade looms.
Is Hicks not beautiful in this photo?
