4 Studios: 1

Jeff Wall's new studio is one of the most serene spaces I've enjoyed in years. It has 30 ft ceiling, white walls, (drywall on concrete block, giving substance ), no windows, polished concrete floors, and heavy security. The bars, locks, and lack of it being apparently a studio add to its superb serenity. Completely empty, with a tall triangular apple picker's ladder next to a 30' x 100' white wall, made me want to get producing large art immediately.
Above is one of Jeff's early photographs, still one of my favourites.
