Always a few steps behind the rest of the tour group, I was grateful to be met by a very special door man, young York, as I made my way to his Dad’s studio space. “Really? We’re not taking the elevator, York?” Exhilarating! I climbed several flights of stairs and followed the sounds of voices…the artist already in enthusiastic conversation with the tour group. “Thank you, York.”
Magic! Pure magic! I really really really enjoyed getting to visit Aaron Sidorenko’s studio. Artists’ studios are fascinating places because they hold so many personal objects…they capture the mysteries of technique that has been developing over long periods of time…they contain book collections…they remove some of the mystery. I felt as though I was stepping into a treasure chest.
I enjoyed bumping into photographer, Jeremy Fokken’s blog…it features some brilliant photographs of Aaron within his space. Nice to see some professional photographs! The quality is stunning. Also, a great resource, Aaron’s website. Thank you, Aaron, for opening up your studio to us. I am so happy that when I left, we could all get a ride on the elevator!
