Q & A

I started collecting because . . .
My wife is an artist, and she's the one who turned me onto art.
My first purchase was in the year . . . and it was . . .
The first piece I bought was a beautiful figurative painting by Jazz-minh Moore.
My recent acquisition is . . .
The Highline park in New York has some great installations on it.
The artist I'd invite to dinner . . .
Richard Serra probably, and maybe Takashi Murakami. Swoon too probably.
The piece that got away . . .
I would really like to own one of Swoon's pieces. I came so close to buying one once, but decided against it at the last minute. Now she has completely blown up!
Favorite art neighborhood . . .
Venice for the Biennale.
If money were no object . . .
I'd probably buy a house in Venice. I could host artist friends all the time, it would be amazing.
