|What role have the figures of art dealer, gallery owners, representatives, and intermediaries in general played in your career?
They've helped , hindered and advised me
I always seams to wanna have one but never get along with them. They always wanna know the answers to things I not yet has come up with.
These roles have as much to do with the maintenance of an
art ‘industry’ as with the furtherance of an artist’s development
and the dissemination of their work.
Personally, a few people have been helpful and supportive. But
many have not although quite possibly not intentionally.
The try to sell my art if they think they can make a buck from it.
I have had only a few art dealers who have really served me well. Paintings sit in galleries for years it seems. Many of them just rely on the "walk-in" customer. I prefer those who have customers that are interested in my work and who like to promote my work.
This is a role that I have yet to be exposed to because I have been doing private commissioned art...
so far, none.
None whatsoever. I, and many of my clients, dislike agents. I avoid them like the plague.
They are a necessary outlet.
Angel and devil in equal measure. Some are snakes and some are ladders.
I suppose you could have called me a representative at one point. I was exposed to gallery owners, and dealers, and artists of all types. I liked to be around art because it's my primary motivational force for my own work- artists influence one another.
