Fabricated Landscapes have flown the coop!

On Saturday, in the sweltering heat and with my air conditioning on the fritz, I drove down to the heart of the Toronto Beaches to introduce my Fabricated Landscapes to the community.  Hosted by a lovely young woman named Shelley, we greeted people at Arts on Queen with fresh strawberries, Perrier and delicious miniature cinnamon buns while they investigated the work.  The people who showed interest seemed to be able to detect my political intentions right away and immediately began to ask me about my process and material intentions.
As I drove home, I realized that all my new work is now in the hands of dealers in the big city and couldn't help but worry about them and where they will end up.  How will I ever know who is collecting the work?  How will I build relationships with the people who have chosen to build a relationship with my work?  Is this what I really want?  Was my goal of securing representation naive?  Does this mean that I can simply make the work and someone else will sell it?    I think we all know the answer there, but wouldn't it be nice.  Regardless, I am grateful for the faith my new galleries have shown in my work.

  1. Yes I would like to know whom buys my work for collection purposes. I understand how you feel.
