About the Artist:
George Gallo is an American original. On every level his paintings can be seen as a search for 
visual perfection and an excursion into the wonders of the American landscape. Just as the French Impressionists pursued light and form, George Gallo builds upon Impressionist theory and practice. But while Gallo’s works may refer to the historic movement, his paint explorations are filtered through decades of modernistic concepts and approaches. Clearly the Abstract Expressionist movement of the Post War period has made its impact on the artist. George’s work is about spontaneity. His version of the landscape explodes with color and palette knife application, clear references to the American brand of expressionism. He offers us a feast for the eye at every turn.

This is to say that the paintings of George Gallo owe their power to an artist so aware of past accomplishments. The paintings indeed celebrate the American landscape just as the Hudson River painters paid special tribute to the land in the mid 19th century. Gallo’s works display an ability to unleash the dynamics of color and emphasize what Cezanne called “form” or the underlying structure of a work of art.

Art which has endured through time is both highly innovative and skillfully accomplished. The landscapes of George Gallo certainly meet that criteria. He is a painter whose work excites the senses and makes us realize that quality art, will extend and excite through the ages.
