I became interested in conservation after reading the book: "Leo and His Circle: The Life of Leo Catelli" and "The Autobiography of Andy Warhol." Both novels are friendly reminders that art and art making are very close cousins indeed. Curating exhibitions has offered me has widened my scope and informed my practice critically by offering me with a chance to be more fully socially engaged. It has also forced me to objectively see selling art as an art in its own right and one that has its own fair share of rewards. Most importantly however, I bring my passion for art making and an outlook which is firmly grounded in formalist criteria. Form, content and intent are carefully weighed and assessed. Contrary to what many skeptics might say, assessing visual art not speculatively arbitrative and authenticity can be qualifiedly measured.
The opportunity to work with international artists, help them grow, and learn from them is an amazing and hugely gratifying thing. Through curating I've had a chance to exchange with the wonderful community of Montmartre and share my love for art with a growing number of international artists, galleries and collectors.
I am now based in London. If you are interested in organizing or curating shows as well, please feel free to contact me.
