"The image is a pure creation of the mind. It cannot be bornfrom a comparison but from juxtaposition of two or more or less remote realities.
The more the relationship between the two juxtaposed realities is remote and true, the stronger the image - the greater its emotive power and poetic reality...etc ( Reverdy Pierre, Nord-Sud, March 1918)"
When I began my career in 2006 as a Gallerist in Saint Petersburg Florida, I would pick artist for very different reasons than I do today. I was a bit blind and led by a few university connections I had made. I was swayed by local artist and later a few impressive curriculum vitae. That was not a horrible method of curating. It was not particularly focused. It was not clear what my voice would be exactly with what I exhibited and when.
It is my personal preference to remain in the background. I like the art I exhibit to stand alone, much like I like my professional appearance. I am a curator. I select specific works of art to be placed together intentionally. I am aware not all people have the same "intention" for showing particular art when they do.
Perhaps it is best to have intention defined?
