Maria Calandra, Pencil in the Studio, visits artists in their studios. While there she talks with the artists about their work and draws the studios. I enjoy the interviews, Chris Martin's new and enormous paintings are a visual feast. But I also find Calandra's drawings of Martin's studio exciting. Joe Fig has a similar project, he recreates artists studios in miniature, like Jackson Pollock in his studio.They've always felt a little like the Art Institute of Chicago Miniatures, a representation of some cool thing or place. Calandra's drawings are different, there is a transformation that occurs that transcends the referent, I want to be in her space.
