Future of the Painting studio

At the moment my painting studio is a shared space in an artists' co-operative. I can spend a long time here or a short time. Neither is necessarily better. I don’t go every day all the time but sometimes I have periods of going daily.

OBEY series (after Shepard Fairey)

Painting here doesn't just refer to socio-cultural production, but to a mode of representation and the aspirational logic of its value form.
