Description a voice and memory from the past, in 1988 i spent some time experimenting with the airbrush and did a small series of geometric landscapes using space for the theme, galileo is one of my heroes for inspiration and thoughts so i created this portrait in his honor. a few years passed and it was in the mid 1990s that I decided to move to brazil. I was blessed to make the aquaintance at an art opening with a man and incredible painter creator by the name of gilberto gomes, gilberto has many great passions in his life and one of them is space and the american astronaut program and in many of his paintings he has portrayed this..gilberto and I spent many a day, many sitting quietly in either his studio or mine with not a word of language between us becasue of his lack of english and my lack of portugese but thru energies for color and painting we shared the most sacred of grounds..there is so much more to be said about our times together and i will be sharing more of these thoughts in due course. I am going to assist gilberto set up his own gallery here at redbubble as well as zazzle and imagekind so you will all have the opportunity to see his amazing paintings. anyway this galileo painting is in his private collection in brazil and this week he sent me this photo of it which really brought back some very special memories, very special.
Gregory Gallo, new york Member Since December 2006 Artist Statement My main passion and desire has always been to create positive motivated themes based on natural inspirations from the good earth herself. My interests in geology astronomy and archeology as well as oceanography have influenced me greatly from the beginning with all my creations in the fine art realms. Both with my paintings as well as what I call digital lithos. I am also involved in the commercial art realms for mass market but still hold true to my ideas of spreading that positive motivated theme. In my realms there is no room for the reality tv ideology that seems to be saturating the market these days. Im available for custom creations on these levels and in my studio I still have the paintings that you might see that are available if you should like to contact me directly at anytime.... Below is a link that will lead you to other of my 23 online stores where fine art products of all kinds from mugs to genuine US Postage stamps can be found for all ocassions, thank you for your time, call me gallo See my gallery at Zazzle
