Gautier Deblonde: Atelier
& collect
The artist’s studio is held in high esteem. It is not just any space. It is not just any room. In the artist’s studio, something happens. Creation happens. This is the place where the artist truly is an artist. This is where the magic happens. But it is only through the eyes of the photographer that we are able to enter the artist’s personal space, that we are offered a sneak peak at that secret lair of creativity. This project will take the readers inside artists’ studios; it will capture what the environment reveals about the artists and their works through the image of the space in the absence of the artists themselves but yet could be seen as a portrait of the artist.The idea of the workshop reflecting the personality of the artist is well explained by Picasso to the photographer Brassai:
"You should come at night to see it ... This light detached each object, the deep shadows that surround the canvases and are projected onto the beams, you will find them in most of my still lifes, painted almost every night ... Whatever the environment, it becomes the essence of ourselves, it rubs off on us, is organized according to our nature ... ".
-Picasso, Pablo. « Conversation with Brassai » in Picasso, Propos sur l’art. Paris, 1998, p 276
