I read the news today – oh Boy!!!

The artnet news in fact – How shocking this was to me, when none of the artists, who I represent, made it in the list of the TOP 100 Living Artists.

And than I thought – well monetary value is not everything, maybe some of them are at least to be found in the Top 100 of most exhibited artists in the world, I mean, seriously…

Again – nothing!

Shortly before my eyes filled with tears, I’m not sure if due to the facts or the fine print  – I found comfort.

Abigail R. Esman handed it to me in her article for http://blogs.artinfo.com/culturalaffairs/

Quote: “… But most of all, I’d like to see the abandonment of all such lists completely.  I can’t help but think of the research a couple of years ago which revealed that most people spend seven to nine seconds looking at a work of art. That’s nowhere near as long as we spend reading lists of who sold where for what. So although it may sound archaic, maybe even a little trite, here’s a simple thought I’m just going to put out there: how’s about we stop looking so much at the numbers, and look just a little bit more deeply at the art?”

So!? What Do You Think?

Let me know!
