Studio Reflections with Diana Gabriel

Studio Reflections with Diana Gabriel

Looking at a miniature can transform our experience into an intimate moment, one where we feel powerful over a minute world. On the other hand, if we are looking at something much larger than us, our bodies and prior interactions of the world in...

In The Studio with Mario Gonzalez, Jr.
Zore, Zore Sixtyfour, Mario–he has many names. And depending on the time zone or space, you may get a different persona which often leads to a different body of work.

Inside Marwen Lab: The Voice and Vision of Young Artists
For the past month and a half the Marwen Lab students and teaching artists have been kind enough to let me attend their meetings and workshops as Sixty prepared to have our first article created by youth. We decided some time ago that we wanted to provide a unique platform for young artists in Chicago to discuss the work they are doing. The students of Marwen Lab immediately came to mind. I’ve...

Many of the attempts, errors and experiments are locked within studio walls, and hidden out of view behind the final work. This piece, as part of an ongoing series of studio reflections,...
