There are all sorts of wrinkles and trends in the art market. Kenny Schachter reveals the potential for yet another when he tells us that artist Jonas Wood seems to be working with Gagosian Gallery but very much on his own terms:
Jonas Wood (b. 1977) continues his upward trajectory ahead of his monstrously anticipated Gagosian show (in terms of its market) where he allegedly won’t give Larry G. access to the works, not only prior to the opening, but even a week after, till the artist get’s the lay of the land on demand.
Holding the behemoth at bay is a huge act of not so much market resistance than savvy. A canvas bearing his lushly painted potted plants from 2007 made $100,000 (est. $40-$60,000).
