I was desperate to dive deeper into my studio practice in a supportive community. I’d been looking into MFA programs at the time but hadn’t found one that felt like […]

Student Perspective: Rachael Bohlander MFA 2020

             If someone had told me, as I embarked upon my Studio School journey (and the New York Studio School MFA Program is most certainly a journey), that my final thesis project upon graduation would be comprised almost entirely of large very abstracted plaster semi-figurative sculptures, I would have laughed […]

“The New York Studio School is the best educational experience I have ever had. I learned so much at the school about how to be a good painter. As a student, I got to meet people that I never would have otherwise and I got to be a part of the New York Art World. […]

Pushing the Wall Projects: Jim Condron & Martin Dull

Jim Condron Statement:My recent works are operatic paintings and assemblage constructions where nostalgia, remorse, repression, stamina, chance, and vitality intermingle with paint, thickening mediums, solvents, adhesives, remnants, wood, foam, cement, scrap metal, plastic, repurposed animal fur, clothing, and occasionally metal, mannequins, and farm equipment.  Discarded fragments carry a history and I embed that history, the […]

Student Perspectives: Charity Baker MFA 2019

My work is partly autobiographical. I am captivated by human interaction, intimacy and landscape. Responding to real-world people and places, my paintings unfold from a winding, obsessive autobiographical narrative; influenced by a cosmist philosophy in which figures and landscapes are transformative. My curiosity with natural light is used to elaborate this running narrative of people in the […]

Student Perspectives: Carlo Cittadini MFA 2019

I came to the New York Studio School a few years after completing my BFA at Pratt Institute. I was working a studio building in Crown Heights, and although I treasured the community I had there, I felt there was something missing in my paintings; I was almost happy with my work, and I found […]

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.
