Location: Greenpoint, Brooklyn
How long have you been in this studio?
Why did you pick the location?
The studio found us.
How does it rank in comparison to your previous studios?
We would give it a blue ribbon at the State Fair if there were a category for studio ranks.
What’s your favorite attribute of the space?
The openness of the space, its functionality and the ability to handle large-scale works.
How often are you in here?
Five days a week.
Can you explain the full capabilities of the studio? What kind of things do you make?
We handle everything in house with the exception of molten metals and toxic resins. Most of the work in studio is focussed on printmaking and painting. Many assemblage works and a variety of sculpture.
Do you have a refrigerator? If so, what’s in it?
Yes we do. A few random beers and some forgotten lunch items from the staff.
What kind of sound system do you have?
We have a nice little Decco amp in the main studio – forget the speakers offhand. In the smaller office/image making part of the studio we have a great set of Orb speakers that work well.
Have you ever slept here?
Yes on several occasions.
