I tend to be effusive. The likes of, “I LOOOOVE your new work,” or “Your gallery is fantastic. The work looks great. I think your program is special. You look great. Where did you buy those fantastic shoes. You’re so pretty. Please, please, please let me be your friend.”
Most of the time it’s sincere. I’m serious. I’m just kind of like this. But, I don’t think it helps. To the contrary.
Everyone knows that you’re twenty times more attractive if you have to be hunted, if you’re a bit out of reach, a bit elusive. This is probably doubly true in the art world.
So, next time I see you, I’m going to try to wait for you to come say hi first.
