The relational theme is strong in the printshop- group work in full effect, conversations, gathering around the pressbed, hijinx, etc. I am not a painter, and I wonder if the studio model is still based on the modernist paradigm of isolation and purity. The graduate studios at The University of Iowa, where I was groomed, mantain this model today. Painters have their own private space, and the Printmakers share rooms, with many desks, and share tools and acid baths and materials (ink). Public vs. Private? Does the print studio model Beaurillaud's notion of "dynamic agglutination?" I am also interested in the characteristics and defining traits of the studio space- what defines the print shop identity other than a press? What defines the painter's studio even more than turps?

the university of iowa...

does that make you a hawk-i-?

Printmakers have traditionally produced in the workshop setting - this is obviously because of the process and utilitarian nature of print making outside of fine art.

Outside of painting, is there really any medium that is perpetually reclusive? Consider architecture, also utilitarian and organized in workshops - sculptures [ie Acconci Studios, Louis Bourgeouis].

What kind of psychologies are associated with these kinds of artists, rather than painters?

I am about to sit down and work on a group drawing - I will share the video when it's done.
