The Duo Behind NYC’s Growing Art Force
Paul Horatio Henkel is an art sales pro while Marc Carson is an artist and former gallerist.
Men Crush 16 Feb 2018

Paul Horatio Henkel is an art sales pro while Marc Carson is an artist and former gallerist. They founded an art consultancy, Horatio & Carson in 2017, specializing in collector advisory and artist development. They are dedicated to discover and promote works of emerging artists through temporal exhibitions in a variety of gallery and industrial spaces throughout New York City. Their first show “Arise” was held in Zaha Hadid’s final Chelsea property in November 2017. The two gents seem to have diverse characters (as you will see from their answers below), but they strive together to make some difference. One of their next ambitions is to set up a home-base gallery in Downtown Manhattan sometime in spring 2018.

The signature outfit….
(Paul) Always includes my rings, my favourite of which is two crab claws clasping a moonstone.
(Marc) Is that I’m true to my mood.

The best style advice I was ever given was…
(Paul) by A.A Gill who told me to stop wearing print t-shirts. They really don’t suit me, and I would never wear anything florescent.
(Marc) Only cowboys wear jeans! And I’m not a huge fan of Off-White… or trends.

Number of unanswered mails in your account today is…
(Paul) 20
(Marc) I’m an artist, not an email guy.

My favourite travel device is…
(Paul) A Smythson notebook
(Marc) Oh, technology…

On a plane I normally spend my time…
(Paul) Sleeping or listening to podcasts
(Marc) Counting down the minutes until I get where I’m going

Top 3 songs on my headphones are… 
(Paul) Fools Gold by the Stone Roses, Loaded remixed by Andy Weatherall and Dance Yrself Clean by LCD Soundsystem
(Marc) Aftermath by Tricky, Watermelon Man by Herbie Hancock, Gas Drawls by MF DOOM

In the gym…
(Paul) I box.

What’s on for dinner…
(Parc) After living in Italy for a year, I can’t go long without good pasta.

My necessary extravagance is…
(Paul) Imported Japanese green tea leafs
(Marc) It’s unnecessary.

If I could host a party for anyone…
(Paul) It would be for the German expressionists.

In the art world currently I find most exciting…

(Paul) That the internet has finally caught up with the art market.
(Marc) You took the words out of my mouth.

My daily art read is…
(Paul) Artsy, artnet and ARTnews

In my bedroom I have…
(Paul) Artwork by Chris Ofili, Gert und Uwe Tobias and Luc Tuymans
(Marc) A bed. I’m a simple man.

The most arty city…
(Paul) Is Berlin, but I have always had an appreciation for Düsseldorf
(Marc) New York City is the greatest city, in every way.

My favourite art-world ladies are…
(Paul) Candida Höfer, Roni Horn and Pipolloti Rist
(Marc) Joanne Leah, Hazel Lee Santino… these women have real talent.
