In 2009 artist and writer Sarah Trigg set out across the country to document the studio practices of working artists in America. At each stop Sarah asked artists to share stories about the important objects, rituals and tools that define their workspace and aid in the process of art making. Sarah’s findings have just been published in a new book called Studio Life: Rituals, Collections, Tools, and observations on the Artistic Process.

The book features Sarah’s photographs and written accounts of her conversations with 100 artists including John Baldasari, Dana Shutz, Gary Panter, Jil Magid, William Wegman and others.

Sarah Trigg is based here in Brooklyn, so we met up at her studio to talk about the book.
