Andrea Mary Marshall and I met by chance - she found an art-collecting article that I had once written for Forbes.com, then she emailed me and I have been a fan ever since. I love her very compelling, raw and unapologetic art: think of Andrea as a cross between Cindy Sherman and Tracey Emin... And as if her talent was not enough, she's been blessed with the looks of a super model, the determination of a lioness and an exquisite taste both in fashion and in her lifestyle. Andrea works mostly with self-portraits and has created a very amazing body of work using various media that include painting, photography and video. I have two of her pieces and I could not be happier having Andrea's works in my collection. Even more so, Ms. Marshall has a kind spirit, incomparable style, great sense of humor and infinite generosity (she even tried teaching me how to take good pictures). Without further ado, here are Andrea's "Out There" obsessions.
Favorite contemporary artists and why:
Dan Colen (1) because he's hot!
Angel Otero (2) because he is also hot
Jeff Koons (3) because he is an industry
Richard Prince (4) because I still love those nurses
George Condo (5) because he is crazy
Ryan McGinley (6) because I love the animal series
Currin (7) because I am also obsessed with Cranach!
Favorite designer (industrial, furniture, object) and why:
Donald Judd (8) because sometimes less is more.
City or place you like to go to escape and why:
Mexico City (9) because I find it's extremely intoxicating, but today I'd like
to be in Ibiza (10) on the beach!
