If I had 6000 Euros

May 20, 2010

If I had €6000 I would buy that painting by French artist Guillaume Mary that I saw at galerie Frédéric Lacroix last night.
Why? Because it’s good. That’s why.
And why is it good? Because it is. And that’s what makes it great.

G. Mary: Bassin extérieur nocturne, 2009. Acrylic on canvas, 184 x 149 cm.

Galerie Frédéric Lacroix
13 rue Chapon
75003 Paris (that’s the 3rd arrondissement)
Metro stop: Arts et Métiers
You have to walk into the courtyard at number 13 and head up the stairs to the 2nd floor of the building on the right. Really nice space. Very light and quite spacious for a young gallery. It has this nice intimate feel to it because it’s basically a transformed apartment so you don’t get that shop-like “buy or else” feeling. The galerist is really welcoming, totally knowledgeable about art and refreshingly friendly and down-to-earth.
