Studio Visit Book

STUDIO VISIT collects impressions about art and life from 100 in-studio conversations with Bay Area artists, writers, curators, and gallerists. Each conversation was whittled down to a list of words and a series of color swatch collages that each person chose during the visit. The result is a series of fragmentary portraits of each person. With an essay by Norma Cole.
