Image of Habitat


An artist's book, 32 pages, color, paperback, perfect bound
By Sharon Butler / 2010 // HABITAT recounts my experience working in a 4' x 5' studio shack in the summer of 2008. The shack was part of Habitat for Artists, an artists' community built by Simon Draper on the grounds of Spire Studios in Beacon, New York. The book includes an essay and full-color images of paintings created during this unorthodox artists' residency. HABITAT is the second ink-on-paper publishing project produced by Two Coats of Paint. Designed by Sofia Nicander, edited by Jonathan Stevenson, with an introduction by Simon Draper.
