Joe Fig: Inside the Painter’s Studio offers a unique glimpse into contemporary artistic practice. After interviewing artists and documenting their studios, Joe Fig beautifully renders their workspaces in miniature. His astonishingly detailed sculptures, which are exhibited alongside paintings, drawings, and prints by 20 artists, transport the viewer into the mind and space of the creative individual. The works by Fig and both emerging and established painters, coupled with frank interviews, detail the intricacies of studio life. Inside the Painter’s Studio features work by Joe Fig and Gregory Amenoff, Ross Bleckner, Chuck Close, Will Cotton, Inka Essenhigh, Eric Fischl, Barnaby Furnas, April Gornik, Jane Hammond, Ryan McGinness, Julie Mehretu, Malcolm Morley, Steve Mumford, Philip Pearlstein, Matthew Ritchie, Alexis Rockman, Dana Schutz, James Siena, Joan Snyder, and Billy Sullivan.
