4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting insight., November 29, 2007
This review is from: Inside the Studio: Talks With New York Artists (Paperback)
I was required to read this book for a graduate class. That's not a bad thing. I'm very pleased with my purchase. I found it esspecially helpful as a book for examples of how to write about art. The book is a collection of writings about the studio practices of artists living in New York, written by those artists. Many of the section were written in the 80's which is interesting as it lets you peek into the studios of those who since then have changed ways of working. Some artists discuss how and why they got into the arts in the first place, or why they choose to work in certain materials, or what work that they made did they find very unsucessful.

Each artist essentially gets two-three pages and the artisist include: (though this is not a complete list)
- Judy Pfaff
- Leon Golub
- Robert Mappelthorpe
- Chuck Close
- Sean Scully
- Vito Acconci
- Louise Bourgeois
- Jim Dine
- Joel Shapiro
- Terry Winters
- Richard Deacon
- Oliver Herring
- Tony Cragg
- Kiki Smith
- Mark Dion
- Fred Tomaselli

(this is less than half of the artists)

Overall I would say it is a good insight into the lives of some great artists and thier working practices.

This review is from: Inside the Studio: Talks With New York Artists (Paperback)
had to get this for class but it's a good book if you're interested in art, sales and production. it isn't something i'd read or look at too often otherwise.
