Inside the Painter’s Studio
By Joe Fig
Princeton Architectural Press

From the publisher: “Inside the Painter’s Studio collects twenty-four remarkable artist interviews, as well as exclusive visual documentation of their studios. Featured artists were asked a wide range of questions about their day-to-day creative life, covering everything from how they organize their studios to what painting tools they prefer. Artists open up about how they set a creative mood, how they choose titles, and even whether they sit or stand to contemplate their work.

Also included are a selection of Fig’s meticulously detailed miniatures. In this context Fig’s diminutive sculptures–reproducing minutiae of the studio, from paint-tube labels and paint splatters on the floor to the surface texture of canvases–become part of a fascinating new form of portraiture as diorama. Inside the Painter’s Studio offers a rare look into the self-made universe of the artist’s studio.

Inside the Painter’s Studio features interviews with Gregory Amenoff, Ross Bleckner, Chuck Close, Will Cotton, Inka Essenhigh, Eric Fischl, Barnaby Furnas, April Gornik, Jane Hammond, Mary Heilmann, Bill Jensen, Ryan McGinness, Julie Mehretu, Malcolm Morley, Steve Mumford, Philip Pearlstein, Matthew Ritchie, Alexis Rockman, Dana Schutz, James Siena, Amy Sillman, Joan Snyder, Billy Sullivan, and Fred Tomaselli.”
