In my journey as an artist, I have drawn inspiration and learned a great deal from some artists. This seems like an appropriate time to list the most prominent of them.
This photographer explored the mystery of scale successfully. His commentary on the craft has given me the most insights into seeing and shaped my development as a maker of images. Here is a short film where he discusses his work.
I was fortunate enough to witness the work of this Japanese Artist first hand at the Leeum in Seoul. Sugimoto is an artisan par excellence. A simple and profound idea compounded by extraordinary craftsmanship is a feature of his work. Here is his commentary on memory.
A Japanese painter whose work is the most intense 'being yourself'.
An artist wrote to her saying: " I wish to sleep in your bed". So Sophie Calle sent him her bed by courier. Once the artist was done sleeping in her bed, he sent it back. Thanking her. For a film on her work or interviews just look up youtube.
