Prior to Pickleman I ran a collection-based art gallery in Chicago called Lawrence & Clark. The storefront gallery was an opportunity to exhibit privately held artwork in a public setting. This book chronicles many of the chance installations the gallery fostered.
If you are interested in living with the peculiar communication that certain objects possess, then perhaps you might be interested in some of the artwork that I champion.

I never set out to be a collector or dealer of contemporary art. I just acquired things that my peers were making that I found interesting. After 35 years I’ve realized that owning art has become synonymous with living a creative life. Art accumulates in parallel to the memories it brings: the people met along the way, the places visited, and feelings felt. Perhaps people get tattoos for similar reasons. I don’t have any tattoos. But I do have a lot of art.
