Sample text

M. m. m. I went on to Yale University where I received an MFA in sculpture in 1994. On graduating, I was fortunate to get gallery representation with Basilico Fine Arts, and was included in a two-person show at Artists Space called “Customized Terror,” organized by Ronald Jones, my former professor at Yale. 47 LIVING AND SUSTAINING A CREATIVE LIFE My career as an artist had begun. Without thinking twice, a classmate and I took on a sublease for a studio in Williamsburg. We would worry about paying the rent later.

It was at this time that I was introduced to a gallery in Germany. They gave me that latitude that I desired. I decided to take a calculated risk and move away from my New York dealer, and put my career into the hands of this dealer. At first, sales of my work had slowed greatly and I had to pick up the income slack with freelance work, but eventually I was able to exert a presence into another audience. I had shown work similar to my older body of work with my new dealer with little success. Despite this setback, I saw an opportunity to shift the direction of my work.

I work with four galleries currently, all of which are fantastic in their own way. Some are great at suggesting new projects, others go to lots of art fairs – they all offer different things. As I’ve grown older, I’ve become much more selective about who represents me. When I was starting out, I took what I could get; now I only work with people who are honest and who truly care about the work. I don’t have time for the drama of dealing with galleries that don’t pay their artists. Working with galleries in different countries has been great because it gives you access to different audiences – it’s also fascinating to see how different the art world is in different places.
