The space of a studio

"The studio, whether it be in a physical room or lodged in the mind and imagination, is a space to pause and think, a generative space that does not run counter to the world at large, but is positioned at a certain distance and remove from it. It provides a way for an artist to create ... moving beyond gut reaction to a headspace that is more contemplative and insightful."
