‘Coalescence’ sculpture on display at the 2021 Sculptures by the Sea Cottesloe by SAM HOPKINS. We recently did a Q&A to learn Sam, his works, practice and studio environment.
Q. What is your studio like, can you describe it for us?
A. I have a small studio at home on what you’d consider a large block for an inner-city property with a large Jacaranda tree beside it. The studio is an old timber-framed asbestos line shed with two big timber barn style doors at the front, a real classic with a lean-to on the side that always seems to be overflowing with materials. It’s a compact space with workbenches and shelving on either side and some space in the middle to work on my projects, far from fancy but perfect for creating my smaller works.
For my large scale works, I then lease a workshop of another artist that I also work with. Located in the Perth foothills, it’s surrounded by trees and nature, with a large 5m high space in the front equipped with a gantry crane for those larger than life works. Down the back is a single-story workspace lined with benches and machinery for all the assembly. Its an amazing place to be able to create.
