EXHIBITION CATALOGUE | ELEMENTS: DESERT, SKY, MOUNTAIN, CLOUD | by BILL GALLEN

“These paintings are the product of many years of traveling through the landscape, smitten by the indescribable beauty and fundamental character of the planet. Desert, Sky, Mountain, Cloud are elements in nature that induce me to paint. They are trigger points from the landscape, structures in the heart. They are the mountain springs from which the bubbling, ineffable thrill of the making of paintings wells up. These elements are the sandbox of our play. Why does the curve of the earth or the drama of a thundering sky excite us? What is released in the witnessing of nature? Why do we attempt to translate this experience? What is conjured in the making of paintings?  I might say... it may be the need of the heart to express its longing. To have chronicled this journey in paint language has been the gift of a lifetime.”
