The Dumfries House Residency: Mark Milroy

A great deal of my work focused on painting and drawing the landscape, beginning with the trees and moving to the stone walls that like the stone of the studio had a pink glow to them. Work that was made there continues into larger canvases in my Brooklyn studio today.

Alumni Studio Visit: Martin Dull

On a typical day in the studio I will arrive around noon. From there I’ll spend time procrastinating, cleaning, wandering around the space, getting my bearings, and gearing up. During this time, I also begin fiddling with any found object assemblages that I have been developing. About an hour or so later, if I have stretchers to assemble and canvases to prepare, I will begin that process. The next phase is painting. This takes a lot of time sitting, walking, looking, and carefully considering all possibilities.
