Artist Robert Amos gives readers a fascinating insider's tour of studios on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands where some of Canada's best-known artists create works.
Spanning more than 15 years of interviews and photographs, Amos has created panoramic collages of these artists' creative spaces, and even more revealing images with his words. Not merely biography, Amos includes examples of completed works, and the insight that only another artist, and talented arts writer, can.
Artists in Their Studios is both a stunning compilation of our Canadian artistic heritage, and proof that art work in progress is art in itself.
