Ten Artists to Watch From the 2013 Bushwick Open Studios 

Jason Varone

When I arrived at Jason Varone’s studio at the end of the day on Saturday, it was unbearably hot. This wasn’t just because it was 90 degrees outside and Varone has a third-floor studio with no air-conditioning; it was also because of all his equipment.
