Studio spaces

My studio space

Sometimes it's just nice to see where other people work from. This is my main workbench where I make my collages and artist books. The screenprinting bench is adjacent. It's in a section of the garage that I affectionally call 'my studio' and when I'm perched at my desk working away the world dissolves around me. I can watch the birds in the grevillia outside my window or just melt into my current work. I love it.

What the bloody - hell are YOU doing?

This is a recent drawing I called "WOMAN" (approx. 1.5m x 2m). My mum recently died. She was 100.
I've been trying to get my work off the 'pedestal', separated from the sterility of the gallery and connected with the natural world. This could explain the lack of cropping but, in truth, I didn't know how. What does it matter if 'certainity' isnt all that important?
I often wonder what others are doing in their workshops/sheds and think that the cpm blogsite - underused &/or forgotten - might be a good place to share our ideas.
Did you see the doko. last night on Anish Kapoor?
