Barnaby Furnas was featured in the new series Habitat, where ARTnews visits with artists in their workspaces. Furnas’s sixth solo exhibition at Marianne Boesky Gallery, First Morning, is now on view through October 10.
In the feature, Furnas discusses drawing landscapes with his young son, saying, “Everything is in conflict in his drawings,” Furnas said. “I’ll draw the sun, and he’ll draw the sky trying to attack the sun. I’ll draw a tree and he’ll draw the wind going after the tree. It’s a good way to approach landscapes. He’s at that age where his cognitive level is so pure, it’s just a great time to steal his ideas.”
