The studio as a second home

As someone who spends his whole waking life in a daydream (no change there then), I loved this article on The Guardian’s website about artists and their studios.

Promoting a new book published by Thames & Hudson, Sanctuary: Britain’s Artists and their Studios, is a book I must get hold of.  The studio is more than a space where artists produce their work, it’s a space where the distractions of the world can be shut out and what is inside our heads can be projected outward, made into a physical something, that we can then share.  Featured in the photo above is Paula Rego in her Camden studio, photographed by Robin Friend with the artist’s model of the past 20 years, Lila Nunes.
