Quote, unquote: The costs of making art

"Rarely when looking at art do we consider the cost of materials. We judge if it’s good or not and are perhaps aware of its financial worth; we talk about the market (dealer/collectors), secondary market (auction houses) and supply (artist’s artworks as commodities). But typically the mechanics of production, the material costs of creating an artwork’s value, are overlooked."
-- Yaniya Lee, writing in Canadian Art about artist Sara Cwynar's costs of production.
