A follow-up to Inside the Painter's Studio: 24 thought-provoking interviews with artists from a range of disciplines: painters, sculptors, photographers, and video artists. Fig has created a sculpture or painting of each artist's studio that accompanies each interview.
Joe Fig is an artist born and raised in Seaford, Long Island, New York. After college, he lived for three years in Woodstock, New York. At age 23, he was the youngest member elected to the Woodstock Artists Association Board of Directors in its seventy-year history. He lived in Central Pennsylvania, Amish country, for a time, and spent a summer in Europe studying sculpture and art. He lived in New York City for twelve years before moving to Connecticut, where he currently lives with his wife and two boys. Part craftsman, humorist and historian, Fig creates intricate and realistic sculptures of artists and their studios, which reveal insights into their personality through their working style and practice. Fig's work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States. He is the recipient of The Space Program, Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation Grant; a Paula Rhodes Memorial Award, School of Visual Arts; a Lucille Blanch Award, Woodstock Artists Association; and a Francis Criss Award, School of Visual Arts.
