How goes the life of a North Fork artist?
Artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Mattituck residents, recently invited the New York Daily News into their home and studio to show a glimpse of where art that is featured around the world - in places such as Münster, Tokyo, and London - is created.
According to the article: "There is a simplicity to their life that has a softness that stops time, and a force that makes creativity rain like a storm ... This is the life artists live on the North Fork."
Both were born in the U.S.S.R. - in what is now Ukraine - and their work is heavily influenced by the social context which surrounded them before moving to the United States, in the 1990s.
