Tengo miedo de verte
necesidad de verte
esperanza de verte
desazones de verte
tengo ganas de hallarte
preocupación de hallarte
certidumbre de hallarte
pobres dudas de hallarte
tengo urgencia de oírte
alegría de oírte
buena suerte de oírte
y temores de oírte
o sea
estoy jodido
y radiante
quizá más lo primero
que lo segundo
y también

Do any of these people actually enjoy looking at art? Or do they simply enjoy having easily recognised, big-brand name pictures, bought ostentatiously in auction rooms at eye-catching prices, to decorate their several homes, floating and otherwise, in an instant demonstration of drop-dead coolth and wealth.

Charles Saatchi

I was explaining to my mother the other day how a good portion of the art world works like fashion, you have a Birkin and everyone knows your rich and with good taste OR You have a Chuck Close on your wall and everyone knows your rich with good taste. It has become just as much of a status symbol as a Ferrari, a private jet or a Starchitect designed home.  There will always be people who care passionately for cars, jets, architects or art, but increasingly it seems to just be another point to show off your wealth.

Also, if Charles Saatchi is grossed out….well that’s not a good sign.
