Studio Visit: Nouvella Books

“Whatever the thing was that you fell in love with in the first place, don’t loosen your grip on it. It sounds obvious, but it can very easily slip away from you when you’re trying to put all the pieces together so that you have the freedom to do whatever it is you set out to do. So hold on. Try and discern the difference between opportunity and distraction. Read for pleasure. Pay attention to how good food tastes every once in a while. Hold on.” Meet Deena Drewis and discover the story behind LA-based independent publisher Nouvella.

Playing with something a little different… PHASE 1 CARVED. #ceramics #pottery #handmade #potter #homedecor #interiordesign #moderndesign #minimalist #studio #artisticprocess #staytuned

In the Artist’s Studio. Aleksei Mikhailovich Korin (Russian, 1865-1923). Oil on canvas.

Korin has depicted himself as the artist at the centre wearing a traditional white tunic. His work on a portrait has been interrupted by an art dealer who is seemingly negotiating his next transaction much to Korin’s displeasure. At the table to his right Korin has depicted his younger brother, Andrei. Perhaps the man seated to his right is Korin’s close friend and fellow member of the Itinerants, Vasily Baksheev.
