"Gallery programs are either esthetic or intellectual. Mine is esthetic," said Bernd Lausberg
, a tall and articulate art dealer who since 2002 has had galleries in both Düsseldorf and Toronto. He favors bright color abstractions by artists I’ve never heard of (Robert Schaberl
, Regine Schumann
) and also has sculptures of pets copied from Old Master paintings and laboriously assembled from slivers of bright cut glass (an orange figure of a lynx, from a work by Albrect Dürer
, was $26,500). I thought that the artist, a young woman named Marta Klonowska
, must have a lot of little cuts on her fingers.
