Michelle Gagliano
Petit Rhosen

2018

About

Petit Rhosen is an optimistic skyscape created with oil, gold leaf and varnish on Wood Panel. It is 35.5x35.5x2.75. As you move around the painting, the colors shift and the gold leaf picks up the light. Michelle Gagliano’s art is a continuous engagement with the notion of beauty and experimentation. Imaginary ‘natural’ forms and textural patinas are melded in an exploration of surface alchemy, presenting the viewer with a breathtaking panorama that both evokes timeless private visions and invokes universal themes and emotions. According to Michelle, "I am experimenting with gold, silver and metallic pigments, suspended on the surface of my panels, then reworking them, erasing, sanding, re-glazing building up and taking down, stretching into, creating a ‘history’. These pigments have a transcendent quality, present in the motifs of so many cultures, including Russian Icons, art of The Incas, Renaissance, all the way to Tibetan Thangkas. Such images were made to dazzle the specta-tor and I love the spiritual reverence I feel using these pigments. I am influenced also by the Bronze Age, Iron Age, even the Gilded Age. The ‘metallic ages’ have given us such a rich cultural heritage and sense of the magnificent." Gagliano has built up a considerable body of work and has exhibited extensively throughout the USA. With projects including Artist Residencies, group shows, museum exhibitions, and private installations, Michelle Gagliano’s work is held in numerous private and corporate collections throughout the U.S.A, Europe and Asia.
