As I thought about which books are most important to me and my development as an artist, it gradually dawned on me that it would not be a reading list.
My studio is a huge warehouse with splendid view in Dumbo, Brooklyn, NY, which I share spaces with five other artists. I’ve been living in New York almost four years now, and discovered the area from other groups of artists who worked there.
We carry on conversations with great books over the years, and as we change, the works change with us.
You can never have enough space, right? Yet, the more space you have, the more stuff you seem to collect.
I think an artist needs nature, rather than a city, to focus, create, and make art.
