My sublet situation at my studio at Waltham Mills Artists Association has changed, so I will be moving out at the end of this month. I mentioned a few posts back that I knew I was on the verge of a major transition, and this change with the studio just makes that more evident.
It’s good timing, I wouldn’t want to change my studio situation while I was in the middle of a project. Since I’m between projects, I can take under consideration my home studio while I’m brainstorming my next project. I wish I had the freedom to do anything in terms of materials and format, but from a practical perspective, I have to let my financial resources and studio situation dictate what I’m able to make. I believe in being true to my artistic intentions, but at a certain point, I do have to set some limits. For example, I have a rule that I won’t make any artwork that doesn’t fit in my car. I got around this with my last project because I found a plastic material that rolled up easily, so I was able to make 7′ x 4′ drawings that would still fit in my car.
It’s going to be quite a bit of rearranging to set up a home studio, but it will be nice to have everything in one place for a change.
