Zitat des Tages von Larry Gagosian:
Take Damien Hirst out of contemporary art history, and there's an incredible void. Great artists, like great people, have second acts.
Honestly, I grew up in pretty modest circumstances. We were a middle-class family.
I never really took a proper art class in college. I just started reading art magazines and going to galleries. I was really drawn to it.
I was always very focused on how people dressed.
You get to a point where you really can't manage more artists, because representing artists takes a lot of time.
When a great artist gets my attention, I pursue it. If I don't, someone else will, you know what I'm saying?
I have a good visual memory. I'm good with faces, but names - I get in trouble a lot; I can't seem to remember people. People think I'm rude. As a side comment, you know, I'm not being rude: I just kind of blank out.
Good jazz has been a big part of my life as far as my interest in music, and... It's kind of weird now with music, the way technology is, with downloading and iPods and electronic distribution, and its kind of - you miss something, I think.
My gallery represents a lot of figurative artists.
