This exhibition features small- to large-scale painted representations of artist studios on Plexiglas and wooden panels. Among them are the artist’s own studio, those of friends, as well as those of famous artists Balthus and Jackson Pollock. The unique perspective featured in the paintings gives the viewer a kind of fly-on-the-ceiling, panoramic viewpoint of these very personal spaces. There are no people present in this body of work (and rarely in the artist’s work in general), however their presence is implied through the documented items in the rooms – studio materials, knapsacks, books, disheveled bedding where a moment’s rest was stolen.
