Fig, whose output includes sculptures, photographs and paintings (he’s also authored two books looking inside artists’ studios), has for the past few years been producing his “Contemplation” series. It consists of intimately sized paintings depicting viewers studying works by artists like Rembrandt, Warhol and more that are hanging on the walls of various museums and galleries. It seems a natural step from peering inside an artist’s studio to visiting the venue where the work is ultimately made public.
