Catrin Morgan’s Interior Studies

Mar 14, 2018

  During Catrin Morgan’s residency, she sat down for a brief interview. Check it out on WSW’s Vimeo! Saint Jerome, in sixteen artworks digitized and simplified by Catrin Morgan, distractedly pores over his Latin translation of the Bible. In some cases, he stops to pull a thorn from a lion’s paw; in one exception, he… View Article

Pulpology: Sheila Nakitende in the Studio

Feb 01, 2018

Sheila Nakitende, standing where the WSW campus meets a grouping of long inoperative cement kilns swallowed by the woods, covered El Horsfall’s face with a headdress. She chose this spot with the rock wall and overgrown fronds to stage an impromptu photo shoot. Shortly afterwards the project, sans model, was installed in the gallery.  The ensemble, made with… View Article

Drawn from Life: Karinna Gomez in the Studio

Jan 25, 2018

On her copper plates, the care with which Karinna Gomez treats her line work is evident across the aquatint grain. We see it in the way an electrical cord coils on the ground and the pattern of a lawn chair’s webbing. Another print, Goldstream Drive, shows sketched lines printed several times with the plate moved… View Article

2017 Fall Interns: Half-a-Year in the Life

Dec 14, 2017

It’s day one, six months ago. Serena Hocharoen arrives first and moves her things into the room with the pink door and window-frame. Outside, El Horsfall is unpacking her car and dropping boxes on the screened-in porch. She heads upstairs to claim the room accented with sky blue. The two of them head to Target… View Article

After years of working in commercial illustration, Art-in-Ed Workspace Resident Ewelina Skowronska is putting commission work on the back burner. Still, her professional experience as an illustrator always plays a role in her personal work. “They are connected and not connected,” she explains. Illustration is where her artistic practice began, but these two parts of… View Article

Ewa Berg Sets the Stage

Nov 01, 2017

On paper, a set of players stand just a few paces apart. Their contours tell us they are facing stage left, one frozen mid-motion. While the players seem left out of focus, their surroundings are rather clear. The lead is backlit by a map of the local Binnewater terrain, their fellow character imprisoned within a… View Article

Object/Image: Suzanne Mooney in the Studio

Oct 05, 2017

In front of WSW’s studio doors, Ora Schneider Regional Grant Resident Suzanne Mooney smashed a piece of antique glass. To be more specific, she smashed a glass plate negative that had been recorded in the first few years of the twentieth century at New Hampshire’s Mount Monadnock. Earlier in the day Suzanne made a contact… View Article

Sun Scenes: April Martin in the Studio

Sep 27, 2017

“I can’t remember why I started working with coffee filters.” April Martin pauses, “I had coffee filters and I had Tang, and the coffee filter form is so much like a cake or bundt pan.” That particular thought propelled one of the many episodes of April’s Lara Giordano Legacy Grant Residency, spent shaping her experimental… View Article

The Last Thread: Sue Carrie Drummond’s Darning Stitch

Aug 30, 2017

There came a point where, when most people would see cloth, Sue Carrie Drummond saw scars. A fraying seam, a rip in a shirt were scratches on an outermost skin. The most loved, often held garments would be the ones riddled with snags, irreparably stretched and faded.  First Sue Carrie would draw these marks in… View Article
