Is being a gallerist a trade or a passion for you?
It’s both it’s a passion but it’s also business and you have to do both and in the best possible way.
You create a platform for the artist to do what they want to realize not just to develop an artist for the first few years and have some success but to develop in a career over 30 years or more that is where it becomes challenging and that’s where it becomes rewarding you know. Because there’s a loyalty also involved.
A book to understand the art world?
There’s a funny little book by William Copley when he was a dealer and not an artist and there’s a crazy book by a contemporary artist Seth Price which says “Fuck Seth Price”.
