During the 1960’s Warren Forma (1923-2014) made a remarkable series of documentary films. The films in his Artists at Work series reveal the ideas and creative struggles of 20th Century, world-class artists as they work through their very individual processes.
These films are important viewing for those who love and appreciate the artistic contributions of these 20th Century masters as well as the contemporary art student seeking insights into the creative process.
To view the Artists at Work films today is to experience the work of a filmmaker who himself was a creative force. These intimate portraits of artists working and talking about what they do were made through a personal, “hand-made” approach to filmmaking that Forma developed.
Five of the films in Warren Forma’s Artists At Work series are now available on DVD.
