Today we have a new P/P post, featuring images of artists in their studios. Studios are very important and sacred things to a working artist, and for many printmakers, the studio itself becomes a subject in their work. Richard Avedon said “I always prefer to work in the studio. It isolates people from their environment. They become in a sense… symbolic of themselves.”
