Description of this Book
Sanctuary: British Artists and their Studios gives a rare and privileged insight to the studios and inspirations of nearly 120 of Britains greatest living artists working today, both in Britain and abroad. Sanctuary's stellar cast of artists encompasses many different ways of thinking about and making art. This lavish, large-format book brims with specially commissioned photographs portraits, images at work, places of inspiration and incisive interviews: the artists open their minds as much as their studio doors. The book is full of insights, revelations and thoughts on the modern art world and contemporary art practice, giving a vivid sense of what it means to be an artist at work today. It features a stellar cast of characters, including Frank Auerbach, Ron Arad, Fiona Banner, Peter Blake, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Martin Creed, Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George, Susan Hiller, Howard Hodgkin, Polly Morgan, Cornelia Parker, Grayson Perry, Paula Rego, Juergen Teller, Gavin Turk, Keith Tyson, Rachel Whiteread and more the list is extraordinary. Iwona Blazwick gives an A-Z of studios with a twist; Richard Corks Studio Visits gives a personal and vivid tour around the studios of Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Bridget Riley and more; Tom Mortons Field Notes on British Art in the Third Millennium is an intelligent sketch of the wider wilder world that all artists now inhabit.
