The Impact of the Art Space
I've lived in lots of different places and usually really try to find some studio space in all the places that I live. This is often a surprizingly difficult task as there is an incredible shortage of affordable artist studio spaces and often getting these spaces is expensive and/or requires being on waiting lists for a long time.
As I tend to move around quite frequently, conventional spaces are often not an option for me- and I have to improvise.
The spaces that I have worked in, certainly influence the type of work I create. The work I produce is directly impacted by the answers to questions about the space like - Is it big enough for sculpture? Can I make a mess of the floors? Is there enough space to work on large canvases? Are there other people working creatively close by? Is there coffee close by?
Because the spaces I work in have such an impact on my work- I also like to document them. This page shows some images of my previous "studio" spaces.
