Contrasting intimate visits to artist's studios, intended to evoke the particular elements of their own interior landscapes, with explorations of the USA's sweeping landscapes of light and form, which have inspired artists since the Luminists and the landscape specialists of the Hudson River School, Art Studio America provides a privileged look at the dreams, ideas and thoughts of 115 artists who are active today. While the world may know their work well, they have rarely, if ever, allowed their personal landscapes to be traversed in such an intimate manner and against the backdrop, both literal and figurative, of their country's larger environment. Some are immigrants, while others chart their professional journey's through their work amid the vagaries of the American art market. From established figures to up-and-coming artists, Art Studio America provides a privileged glimpse into the workings of one of the world's largest artistic communities. Essays by renowned specialists Robert Storr, Mark Godfrey and Ben Genocchio augment the heavily illustrated artists profiles. From New Yorks hurricane- battered skyline to Southern California's hazily sunny boardwalks, Art Studio America offers readers the chance to embark on transformative journey's of their own.
