I don’t know how Sarah House’s studio evolved. It sure looks like it was all by design. But I also know that serious artists focus on the work to the exclusion of everything else.
Experience has shown that the best workspaces prioritize function over form. Sarah’s New Orleans studio falls into that camp. However, I could discern visual patterns with my camera.
Are they just a series of happy accidents?
It doesn’t matter. That’s because the space fits the artist and vice versa.
