J OHN SUGHRUE, co- creator and producer of Dallas Art Fair; founder, Brook Partners and Fashion Industry Gallery; developer, Museum Tower; president, Dallas Contemporary. "Gabriel Rico creates sculptured works comprised of found and created objects that can read almost like a mathematics equation. Indeed, math equations can be embedded in the work. I find the work aesthetically beautiful; it inspires contemplation and self-awareness. If Rico could compose my portrait in equation form, perhaps the mystery of my life might be solved. That would get my attention." C AMERON SILVER, founder of L.A. vintage powerhouse Decades; created exhibition for MOCA; dresses top celebs for the red carpet; starred in Bravo's The Dukes of Melrose. "I would love to be photographed by Wolfgang Tillmans. Many years ago, I attended an opening reception at Regen Projects in Los Angeles, followed by a dinner in honor of Mr. Tillmans. The rawness of the images left an indelible impact that continues to captivate me." D AVID AND ANN SUTHERLAND, founders of Sutherland and Perennials brands; art collectors. David Sutherland "I would want Lucian Freud, an artist whose work is anything but realistic — which would scare me — but totally recognizable. A 'soft' Picasso, if you will." Ann Sutherland "I will take Alberto Giacometti as a sculpture, as his stylized bronzes r e p r e s e n t t h e Existentialist point of view. As I ponder his figures, I realize that his viewpoint would translate me as tall and thin — something I have always admired b u t n o t q u i t e achieved." M ICHELLE NUSSBAUMER, famed interior designer; owner of Ceylon et Cie; queen of the Ikat; chatelaine of a chalet in Gstaad and hacienda in San Miguel de Allende. "It's a toss-up, starting with John Singer Sargent. Who wouldn't want to be immortalized by the famous 19th-century society painter? I especially love his portrait Madame X. I wouldn't mind a portrait by Frida Kahlo. Imagine the variety of color, ethnic dress, and flower crowns. Not to mention her pet monkeys." D O N A L D R O B E R T S O N , @ d r a w b e r t s o n ; p r o l i f i c illustrator and pop artist; bon vivant; launched VivaGlam! for MAC Cosmetics; collabs with Jenna Lyons, Veronica Beard, Mark Cross, Mattel, Colette Paris.
