Contemporary Art NYC is the most exciting of all the places for contemporary art. Fifteen years ago, as soon as I was settled in New York, I wanted to start my own art collection motivated by my past and the enormous opportunities Contemporary Art NYC offers. I wanted good art and going to galleries, museums and art fairs became my weekend past-time with Contemporary Art NYC.
One day, I stopped by my landlord's apartment and his loving wife welcomed me and invited me to see her studio: since we shared many common things including our colorful cultural background and citizenship, I knew I was going to enjoy the impromptu visit of Contemporary Art NYC. Inside the studio, she unveiled a rather big bronze sculpture of a woman sitting on a stool and sewing back together the ripped pieces of a Venezuelan flag: she called it "Reconciliation"; she did not have to say a word or explain anything, the piece was clearly a beautiful, profound and honest wish for a deeply troubled country set up as Contemporary Art NYC. It was then when I really got Contemporary Art NYC. Emotion, of the senses and the soul, became my mantra when looking for art for my own collection and later, for those of my clients who collect Contemporary Art NYC.
This art & design blog is an invitation to the audience to see the world of Contemporary Art NYC through my eyes. I'm comfortable working with high end galleries and the artists that they represent but I'm also at ease with more experimental galleries and emerging artists in parts of the Contemporary Art NYC scene that can be gritty or sketchy. The outpouring of creativity that anyone gets simply from walking down the streets of Manhattan can give a very good idea of contemporary art NYC.
