Lot Essay

“There is no background in Gallo’s paintings; a sort of impermeable wall restrains the duels of signs that explode on the surface, drawn with colors that remind us of abstract heights of outer space, dizzying depths of the sea. The painting becomes the theater of enactment of an archaic struggle between forces destined to never be stilled, between energies that be evoked but never blocked. This is why the artist uses a language between the organic and the figural, between the informal and suspected representation”.

Achille Bonito Oliva
