Reader: The grass may be greener on the other side, but watch for pee spots
James Lorca Garcia Velazquez doesn't think the Denver art market is interested in his work. In fact, as he said in an interview with Tiffany Fitzgerald, he doesn't think Denver is interested in art at all. And so he's moving to New York.
And not a moment too soon, according to some of the people who commented on the Velazquez piece.
Bitter much? Just because Denver does not bring you enough glory does not mean you will find great success in NY. I own a gallery in Denver and yes it can be difficult to sell art here but to blame it on the collectors and the city in general is a weak andfalse argument.
From Art Buyer:
Your Art fucking Sucks a big fat Fart! Can't wait to see the reception in NYC!
But Marie might have said it best:
The grass is always greener on the other side of the street.... the thing you end up finding out, however, is that even the best of lawns have pee spots on 'em!
