“Inside My Studio” with Catherine Opie

Cultured Magazine

Cultured presents Anderson Ranch Arts Center’s second annual “Inside My Studio” summer series. Directed and produced by Dennis Scholl, the series features nine artists as they paint intimate portraits of their life and studio. The seventh installation of this year’s series features Los Angeles-based artist Catherine Opie. Having spent most of her career in a 500-square-foot studio, her new 5,000-square-foot studio is a whole new life. Opie differentiates the good days from the bad based on her hours being consumed by being with the camera or having to do the laborious other side of her job: editing, emailing, writing, etc. Her portraits of David Hockney and Frank Gehry have all been taken atop two of her longtime favorite chairs that are part of her studio no matter the size of the space.
