studio spaces: in the make.
i somehow stumbled upon this great new online project good friends Nikki Grattan and Klea McKenna have been working on over the last few months. It’s called In The Make — a blog that showcases weekly studio visits with artists and designers. It’s a collaborative effort — Klea takes the photos, and Nikki does the interviews. Through the photos, text and interviews they aim to explore the artists’ space, process, influences, and the behind-the-scenes elements that are often unseen in the finished work.
In the Make highlights the ways in which each artist’s personal aesthetic pervades their environment and reveals their perspective. Nikki and Klea are also are interested in the daily realities of making creative work and how each artist manages to sustain their practice. The two are just getting started, beginning with local Bay Area artists, but hope to branch out soon and begin visiting artists far and wide. Check out some of my favorite visits from In the Make.
