To Collect

I have always collected. As a child, I collected stamps, pennants, rocks, etc. Nowdays, I collect works of art. I buy some, and trade with other artists. I also donate some of my key pieces to museums.

My aunt Ruby, spouse of Bruno Cormier who signed the Refus global manifest and died in 1991, asked me to help her in setting up the catalog of their art collection. I have a precious memory of the days spent with her, taking pictures and measuring the art works, and further working the images once I got home.
The mailing of the month testifies to this work.
