Student Perspective: Anita Trombetta (MFA 2023)

Before coming to the New York Studio School, I was working in a studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn. For several years I was making abstracted bodily paintings of food and everyday objects.

Jamie Allen (MFA 2020) Interviewed in Two Coats of Paint

“While the paintings definitely begin in more of an intuitive manner, the way in which the space becomes articulated revolves around the idea of creating a structure, similar to a scaffold, that can then be built upon itself; playing with the edges of the rectangle and the way in which the forms can be considered […]

Marathon Perspective: Katherine Earle, Teaching Assistant

When I first found my way to a New York Studio School course with Jilaine Jones a few years back, I did not have much experience working in three dimensions.  Beyond a rather spectacular failure to achieve my artistic vision in a block of rosewood in high school, I had mostly shied away from creating […]
