This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust
Born in Detroit, Michigan, I have an early memory, at age five or six, of gazing at a Franz Kline painting in the Detroit Institute of Arts and, to the amusement of two adults behind me, explaining Kline's heavy, black, mark-making to my older sister. Seeing that Franz Kline painting and, on exhibit nearby, a massive, black, room-like sculpture by Louise Nevelson, might just account for the trajectory of my life in art.
