Artist Studios

Leith let me know of a show about artist studios that was on television in Australia recently. I missed it, but thanks to this wonderful thing called “the Internet”, I can still see it online (and share it with people all over the world.)

The photographer Ian Lloyd visited the studios of 61 well known Australian painters and photographed them. He has now put together a book called “STUDIO: Australian Painters on the Nature of Creativity” and a DVD of the same name.

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation spoke with Ian Lloyd and a few of the artists from the Studio project (Wendy Sharpe, Luke Sciberras, and Ken Done). A video and transcripts of the report can be seen on the ABC site here.

There’s also extended video interviews with the artists here (Ken Done), here (Luke Sciberras), and here (Wendy Sharpe).
