MARC QUINN - FLOWER PAINTINGS

A new art gallery: does it really make sense?

After many yearsí involvement in the world of modern and contemporary art, I started to feel there was something missing, as if just relating to the works and meeting their artists was lacking an essential dimension. I felt curious to view the consumers of art, in an enclosed, protected and purpose-designed environment, where I could enjoy the privilege of observing their reactions to the work. Living in a world where everything moves at such a frenetic pace: messages, relationships, artists, works, I felt the need for a physical as well as a visual contact with the works. So thatís the answer: a new gallery, a new space, in order to enjoy once more the inimitable experience of a direct relationship with art. Emanuele Bonomi
