(Excerpt from the full interview)
"There are so many artists I'm excited about — too many to list. However, I just fell in love with David Musgrave's graphite drawings at Luhring Augustine Gallery and Katie Bell's paintings and installation at Mixed Greens is amazing — she's one to watch! On my wish list would be a painting by Kadar Brock who's work I recently saw at Gallery Diet and I dream of living with one of David Altmejd's sculptures."
