"Outdoor sculpture is hardly an over-reported area of the Art Market so, when I heard that an international selling-show was taking place this Summer on top of a Normandy cliff, I set off to investigate. Not just any old cliff: the cliff in Etretat where Claude Monet painted his famous Impressionist seascapes in the 1880s.".
O’Keeffe herself often commented that the colour and form of the flowers was more important than the subject matter, suggesting that she was interested in the natural form and capturing its beauty. Several feminist critics have praised O’Keeffe’s work as capturing feminist themes far ahead of their time. Certainly, in the era in which she was working, O’Keeffe was in a male-dominated world and was repeatedly reminded of her gender and otherness as she moved through the art world.
"I believe Art Düsseldorf has great potential for growth and I’m always interested in working with fairs that add value to the market. Walter Gehlen and his team have enjoyed two very successful editions - we can now couple this with the experience and knowledge Angus Montgomery Arts has garnered from over 40 years of establishing contemporary art fairs. Welcoming Art Düsseldorf into our portfolio will, I hope, enable the fair to benefit from our wider international audiences of collectors, exhibitors and partners".

Colombia’s renowned modern artist Edgar Negret did not imitate reality. He fed off it and created a language that invents new ways of presenting our surroundings. Edgar Negret (1920) lived in awe of the universe. “I lived on the verge of something - on the fringe of reality- happening,” he told journalist José Hernández. “I believe in my work I have searched for God always and everywhere.”
"The relationship between Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s location and identity is absolutely fundamental. The physical landscape we curate and the backdrop of industrial towns and rolling hills determines aesthetic decisions about the location of sculptures as well as providing inspiration for artists to develop new work".
"By standardized beauty I mean the fact that nowadays you mostly have to lay all on the table, on videos, billboards, photos… Everything has to have a fast effect, eye catching moments to reach your primary sexual instincts because everything is about selling something to someone. The easiest way to do that is to bring different female body parts to the game. ...I think that my main goal has been to try to make the viewer feel the beauty instead of actually seeing it in a way".
