Mathew Marks: artist vs. dealer?

Marks, of Mathew Marks Gallery who just hosted the current Jasper Johns' show is featured in New York magazine. The article is about power not art: his power over artists. It's about the power of money over art, the power of money to make or break art. It is debated in the story that Marks doesn't discover artists he just knows how to cater to them and play the fancy "art game". For the millions that Marks has now...he certainly wasn't poor to begin with either. Oh, the game of art....we need dealers they need us...who will win in the end?....hopefully both?
