Collecting for Inspiration

I discovered the book Rachel Whiteread Drawings when I was in J.Crew shopping for a T-shirt. The store was using art books (REALLY great ones at that!) as visual props. This was a mistake as far as I was concerned because I was totally disinterested in the clothes and immediately drawn to playing with the “props”.




Anyway, for me, discovering an art book that I’ve not seen before is one of my joys in life. I really like this one because, to me, it’s mostly about gaining inspiration from the mundane, objects all around you, and also about collecting objects that interest you that may later serve as starting points for artwork.

Watch this video to see Whiteread talking about her collecting process…
