As with all lines walked, this line comes with inter-action. I've been doing install for about 3 1/2 years now, and I enjoy being near works that I would never see or even at times heard of until this job. I've been fortunate to see some works that I read about in college, and met some collectors I've only heard about. I took over as lead art preparator at [unamed company] about 2 years ago. I have been exposed to so many new artists, Miklos Gaal, Stephane Couturier, John Beech, Lisa Hoke, and reached out to others, like Dennis Hollingsworth. I have it pretty good. I unfortunatley am surrounded by employees that seem to find abusing said art, a fun inter-play. I either see it, and this week I've see plenty, in the signs stabbed into the Ursala Von Rydingsvard, to post-its on a Leslie Dill work. This week has also been wise ass week from employees. I have pretty thick skin for the most part. The combination of seeing damage done to art, and having someone rip into me about the art[usually a very dim take]. The always original making statements/proclamations on what he/she thinks of modern art[again, college educated people doing this to me], or my all time favorite, the joke/funniest comment on art I've ever heard[by the way, I've heard them all now, and it's just a loop], has got me a touch ready to swing. I'm glad we have a three day weekend coming up. It's a lonely job out here somedays defending this art. I'll work on my armour plating over the weekend, and be ready to stand my ground next week.
