Flood's studio looks delightfully chaotic in this photograph. The artist himself is pictured holding a rolled-up artwork, wearing a shirt that almost seems to…

This week on studio Sunday, let’s look at the work space of Amanda Martinez. Martinez is based in Queens, New York, where she produces works of abstract sculpture that borrow from the visual language of props and set designs. 

 

Martinez’ studio looks a little cozy in this photo. This could conceivably be a small corner of a larger shared space, or a nook within a warehouse setting. The artist uses a variety of materials, many…

Our studio Sunday artist this week is Zhang Enli. Based in Shanghai, Enli is known for gestural paintings in oil and watercolour, often depicting overlooked elements of cities and civilizations -- maps, cast-off detritus, and other seemingly mundane details of urban life. 

 

I really like the look of Enli’s studio here. It’s bright, spacious, and airy, and though it contains a number of artworks, none seem to be competing with…

Our studio Sunday artist today is Helmut Lang. You may have heard of Lang’s name in the context of fashion -- the Austrian artist is well-known for his minimalist fashion designs which rose to public attention in the 90s. 

 

The artist’s studio has a very dramatic atmosphere here -- while I suspect that the colours in this photo have been manipulated to some degree, the artist’s space is still very heavy on greys and blacks,…

This Sunday, let’s take a look inside the studio of Huguette Caland. Born in Lebanon, Caland later moved to Los Angeles, where she lived and worked for almost three decades. The artist is best known for abstract-figurative works that often build landscapes out of the female body, and examine beauty, eroticism, and other sometimes-taboo subjects. 

 

In the above photo, I think I’m most struck by how happy the artist looks. She…

I like the homey feel of Monk’s studio in this photo. The space is a jumble of various…

This week, let’s take a look inside the studio of French artist Bernard Frize. A painter by trade, Frize is known for paintings that explore new and interesting techniques in applying paint to substrate, while focusing on painting more as an industrial process than as a pursuit of an end product or aesthetic. 

 

Frize’s Paris studio looks quite airy in this photo. There’s one large window visible to the left side of the…
