- Dan Colen, “Poetry” at Gagosian Gallery – Art review – Time Out New York – "Larry Gagosian could probably smear dog shit on a crab apple and sell it for a cool $300,000". RESPONSE VIA KRISTON CAPPS: “That son of a bitch Castelli, You could give him two beer cans and he could sell them.” -de Kooning. (And of course Johns did: http://bit.ly/9yvg89 and Castelli sold 'em.) <br />
Meanwhile, I spoke to an actively exhibiting artist who went to school with Colen back in the day. Based on his knowledge of the artist he believes the work is going to get better. I think setting the bar so low makes improvement very easy, but also, he's made good work before so I believe that prediction to be true.
