I grew up having three artist parents, I’ve been a photographer since 1957 or 1973 (depending on how you count) and I’ve been a curator since 1975. Consequently, I am happy to find myself in artists’ studios often. I’m primarily there to look at their art but I love to savor the delightful conjunctions of objects and images in those studios – 2 and 3 dimensional collages that both create and result from the powerful artistic charge that is the lifeblood of an artist’s studio.
