Karina Bania shares her bright San Diego studio with us, along with some insight into her process.
“Most of the time my art-making process is very solitary. It is usually just me alone with my materials, creating art in the studio.”
“I am endlessly inspired by the natural environment, and often wander landscapes that later return to me as paintings. I am not always aware of the connection to a certain place as I begin a painting, but as the work unfolds, I begin to realize the environment that inspired it.”
“I try not to be precious or overly precise, but as free as possible. I know that much of what I do at this point will be covered up, it is only the foundation of the painting.”
Damien Davis' February Study Session at the Whitney Museum featured a 99-component, participatory sculptural project inspired by Felix Gonzalez-Torres.
