In this collection, you will read stories about relationships with artists and their spaces, bonds between the viewer and the artist, and tales about how a space was impacted by its artist.

Some of the stories are the results of interviews, in which I mercilessly grilled the subjects in desperate attempts to satisfy my curiosity. Other stories were written without the artist's knowledge. Both degrees of proximity broadened the scope of my work and added dimension to the collection.
