William T. Georgis talks process
“Most of the clients I work with are serious collectors and what I mean by that is many of the clients are compulsive and obsessive about purchasing art and they can’t help themselves from buying more,” said William T. Georgis during a recent pre-Basel jaunt to Miami. He was in town to promote his new book, Make it Fabulous (The Monacelli Press), at a fashionable book signing event at the Wolfsonian.
Georgis would understand the mindset of a collector. He and partner Richard Marshall own a prolific collection. In their New York townhouse, they display works from Julian Schnabel, Alex Katz, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ed Ruscha and Bruce Nauman.
“There is no stasis,” he continued. “You don’t know what is going to be on a wall. It’s constantly going to change. For certain clients, this means you create a neutral space to work with all kinds of art.”
