Carlos Fentanes (CF): Why you choose to show realism?
Principle Gallery (PG): The gallery has been open for 25 years and that has been traditionally what we show. Over the years we have branched out to artists who are less of classical realism and verge in abstraction. This seems to be a sweet spot for our clients we have tried pure abstraction in the gallery, but it has never done as well as the realism or abstracted realism with our clientele. M
CF: Do you think that is the taste of the city? I mean: here in Saskatoon, SK where I live, galleries mostly exhibit landscapes and local fauna paintings like moose or bears: that’s the taste of the people in the Canadian prairies.
It seems that the “Let’s talk about you for a minute” formula is working, the less I talk about me and more about them the more I get an answer, wow, why nobody told me that before? So it’s not just about sending letters, resume, images… that’s doesn’t matter, first I have to engage them in a conversation a real conversation nevertheless the second question wasn’t answer so this wasn’t a “real” conversation, that was more of a “don’t waste my time now”.
