Joel Shapiro




Joel Shapiro’s studio, 2014.

"....
Joel Shapiro’s studio hums with activities guided by his ideas. It spans two floors of a brick building that used to supply electricity to trolleys. On the day I visited, the top studio looked like a giant exhibition area with many, many models – some leaning against walls, some mounted on tables, some suspended – chattering to each other and showing off their brightly-painted parts. The white horizontal files, small power tools, paint, and supply areas neatly bordered the vast art space with a library and archive in an adjoining space.

On the first floor, several assistants and larger power tools were concentrated in one work area, and in the center was a small supply of wood beams, mostly spruce, and larger sculpture in progress. Another area held a suspended, torqued, curving board, an installation model for a show at Rice University in Houston (now past), and an architectural model of a gallery space for an upcoming show.
....
On the top floor of the studio is a small dining and living area with a stunning view of the Queensboro Bridge. As I walk back to the subway on noisy, truck-jammed streets past mostly windowless and/or rundown industrial spaces, the contrast is striking. Shapiro’s workplace was an oasis of ideas, colors, light, movement, and open space."

Judy Pfaff’s studio, Tivoli, New York, 2014.

"....
When Pfaff found her Tivoli studio, this former apple orchard had both flooded and burned. The standing structures needed roofs, floors, doors, windows, and other major building and infrastructure construction. As a child growing up in war-torn England and a predominantly African American neighborhood in Detroit, Pfaff created her own art fantasy worlds. She has deftly fashioned the insides of prior studios in rundown industrial parts of Brooklyn and Kingston, New York. Her Thanksgiving eviction (the building was sold) from the Kingston riverside studio in 2001 gave her little time to move. Tivoli became her greatest reconstruction challenge.
....
Judy deftly guides me through the studio complex: a huge tool shed/machine shop, a framing room, a drawing room (my favorite), the East and West sculpture studios, and the indoor garden dominated by a giant Monstera deliciosa (Swiss cheese plant); nearby, a Selenicereus grandiflorus (night-blooming Cereus), which blooms only once a year, is about to open! Among the exotics, in off the asphalt, a six-foot length of mossy earth has tall weeds growing out of it.

The huge archival reconstruction room with classic early sculpture is at the northern end of the building, and the archival data and giant Epson Printer room is more central. The Shaker room with its extra-large dinner table, book-lined shelves, and antique storage drawers leads to a guest bedroom complete with a regal mosquito net, antique dresser, skylight, and windows on all sides. We end up in the kitchen, next to a homey bathroom, its shower area framed by a giant boulder. Out the kitchen door is a lush garden with hollyhocks, lacinato and broad-leafed kale, giant tomatoes, two kinds of basil, thyme, and much more. All work areas are huge (each bigger than most city studios); the overall studio complex has two levels, and colorful woven rugs brighten the poured concrete floors. Many rooms have colored skylights and industrial sized doors for easily moving things in and out.
