Joe Fig is an artist born and raised in Seaford, Long Island, New York. After college, he lived for three years in Woodstock, New York. At age 23, he was the youngest member elected to the Woodstock Artists Association Board of Directors in its seventy-year history. He lived in Central Pennsylvania, Amish country, for a time, and spent a summer in Europe studying sculpture and art. He lived in New York City for twelve years before moving to Connecticut, where he currently lives with his wife and two boys. Part craftsman, humorist and historian, Fig creates intricate and realistic sculptures of artists and their studios, which reveal insights into their personality through their working style and practice. Fig's work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States. He is the recipient of The Space Program, Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation Grant; a Paula Rhodes Memorial Award, School of Visual Arts; a Lucille Blanch Award, Woodstock Artists Association; and a Francis Criss Award, School of Visual Arts.
A surprisingly rich, intimate, and informative collection. -Boing
The images are compelling, and the advice Fig's subjects offer is not just for young artists but is surprisingly universal. -Boston Globe
What Inside the Artist's Studio reveals about the artists themselves - their childhood, education, domestic life, and career - is refreshingly candid and down-to-earth. But it isn't just the interviews that make this an intriguing book, and it isn't just the photographs that, rather than depicting the artists at work, are focused more on the interiors of their studios. Rather, it's Fig's creative responses to each studio visit - catalysts for his own artistic practice. -Santa Fe New Mexican
