For four decades, a former synagogue on Hester Street has been a studio, living space, and renovation project for the artists Thomas Nozkowski and Joyce Robins.
The building’s simple, open plan was consistent with the young artists’ work and living philosophies. “When we came to New York in the early sixties, we were taught by Abstract Expressionists,” says Nozkowski. “And I remember discussing with our teachers that, you know, it was morally important to live and work in the same place. You fried eggs the same way you painted paintings.”
