Why is art space important?

Often, there are many restrictions on creativity, directly related to space.  If you’re a painter, in the best situation, you’ll have to pull out drop cloths, set up your equipment, pallets, and go.  By then you may have lost an idea or some inspiration.  Then you have to clean up, pack up, and hope that your day to day life doesn’t have a negative impact on how the paintings dry.  In a studio, you walk in the door, and there’s energy, you’re ready to work.  When you’re done, you cover up your work, and walk.  When you return, it’s as you left it.  With many art forms it’s the same.  It’s so incredibly important to have a space dedicated to your work with the equipment you need, and nothing holding you back.  No one complaining that your halochrome is stinking your living space up, or that we all go out to dinner smelling like linseed oil.   It’s privilege to work in an environment set up for art.
