[ED: On a recent and bitingly cold Saturday, I had the immense pleasure of meeting and photographing artist Richard Giglio in his Upper West Side studio, his creative base of operation in Manhattan for the past fifteen years. Though he splits his time between New York and Key West, Giglio works compulsively, and witnessing his studio work firsthand felt at times like a brilliant architectural dig--fashion illustrations, studies for textiles and carpets, typography created for Bruce Weber, fabrics for Donghia, works on ceramic, on paper, on screens. More information on Richard Giglio is available via his website, and also through Cocco and Salem, his Key West gallery, and Gallery Galleon in Puerto Rico. High-quality editions of his work are available through Vandeb Editions.
This post also inaugurates a new series, ROOMS, featuring original content and original spaces, shot by either myself or the artists/inhabitants in residence. Full galleries of each will be made available here.
Thank you to Richard, and to his assistant Ray Black for their fabulous and accommodating company.]
