It's always intriguing to when there is a clear correlation between the style of an artists' workspace and the artwork they produce. That phenomenon is definitely at work in these photos of Woody Biggs' studio. He is an assemblage artist and the palette of colors in his pieces flows out into the physical space he produces them in - they feel right at home.
He uses vintage French menus, sheet music, receipts and letters for this artwork. The warm whites, dusty taupes and punches of black taken from the materials set a strong but subtle palette for the whole studio. The colors, fabrics, furniture style and general layered arrangement of (beautiful!) things in the space that creates a lovely impression of times gone by, creating instant history.
