Jerry Saltz Studio Visit Report
Last week at Art Basel: Stuffy's, after overcoming my starstruckedness, I found the courage to invite Jerry Saltz to my studio. He graciously accepted!!
That is Libby in that painting he's studying! Jerry said he never misses a day checking Libby and Roberta's blog... and that "they are fantastic artists blazing new trails".
I totally agree!!!
I showed him all my friend's work, and he loved it all!
It looks like he is smiling here, doesn't it? Maybe the hint of a smile? I think he must like that painting -
but when I asked him what he thought... SILENCE.
Okay... I blinked. He got up on tip-toes, though. Very aggressive.
Seduced. Shalom, partner.
Oh Jerry, I don't care if you don't like Marlene Dumas.
