To trade you 2007: And the winner is

I like Trading you, it is a special fair, which unifies and marks quotations between professionals.

The big difference of Trading you and Arch, it is not possible to see in the ápoca of the works (in the end one time painting and contemporary sculpture, which is what takes and sells in both say what they should say), the big difference is that, to Trade you, there go collectors and point. Many other groups go already to Arch and a fair is many more masificada. Other one of the big differences is that in Trading you, almost everything is good, better and worse, but almost quite well. In Arch there are very good things, and also “new gurus” who try to sell to us a bottle of dog's excrement as art. (Sometimes they obtain it)

This year I could have seen curious and interesting things. I recommend especially some works in galleries of any confidence … A beautiful Barjola "Tauromachy" in the Lorenart stand, the most interesting 2 Benjamín Palencia, of better that I see years ago, in Lorenart and Heller (the last one was already sold), a pair of good pieces of Chillida, and an incredible Barceló, a fabulous picture of Zabaleta, a good Manolo Valdés in the Gallery of Daniel Cardani and great great work of Jaume Plensa.

(Medellin, Colombia/1932)

My curiosity not only centers in small or void quality and grace amen of scarce interest that generate in me drawings as this one of Boatman, but the surprising of his starting prices, which make suppose that the work will not sell. A drawing to Boatman's nib at these prices is exaggerated to me to understand, for much that pawn some galleries (and it seems that now Auctions Last).

Create me, Boatman will not go down in history for these drawings, of scarce grace and quality. His work starts and finishes in the sculpture and some free linen.



I draw. 94 x 67.
Signed and dated in 1981 in the right low angle.
