“Life and art are about risk. 

And the same goes for curating a collection. 

In fact, risk-taking has been instrumental to everything I’ve done professionally. 

You have to be willing to take chances, combining lesser-known, emerging artists with established masters, because it is the unknown and undiscovered who bring a fresh and fearless new perspective that challenges the status quo.

……..I know what I like at first glance and what will sell, but I’m also very interested in artists who have committed their lives to their craft.

Plus, discovering emerging artists, connecting them with collectors and helping them develop their careers is indescribably gratifying. I want to know about their ideas on art, society and the world, and that they’re always evolving and growing. 

So of course I want eye-catching pieces, but I also want to know that they come from a place of commitment and perception.

That’s the kind of art I want to work with and encourage.”

“Art is a passion purchase. 

Future value is secondary, so buy what you love, try to avoid things that are hyper-trendy, and if you can, don’t buy anything until you have gone through the fair at least once. 

And once you decide on something, sleep on it.”
