Love is the main reason why you are connected with the world of art – this is the world drived by feelings and passion.
You can look at this story from the perspective, where the collector plays for himself the role of “hero-lover.” He rarely controls the feelings or calculates every step he takes – he gives in to the impulse of emotions and impulse that lead forward and open the way.
Seeing in front of himself a painting, he feels the spark and excitement, which promptes him to acquire – conquest. Or a feeling of deep despair at the thought that the painting – his passion, was acquired by another collector. Or anxious waiting for writing a picture, as proof of his humility and readiness for anything for the sake of love.
A curious analogy, isn’t it? This is the same thing that I, as an artist and collector, am experiencing when I meet a painting that ignites a spark in me… Yes, this is love at first sight!
