“When you pick up one piece of dust, the entire world comes with it.”  -Zen saying

A selection of still-life paintings, mostly contemporary.

“There are four elements that ultimately determine quality and meaning in painting. One, the color you choose and how much. Two, where you put it; three, in what manner. The fourth is outside you, and that is life.”  -Larry Rivers.

“Christopher Gallego’s ‘Bag of Plaster (2000), scuffed and torn, is handled with gracious attention to detail, texture and tone. It is painted with the sympathy and persuasiveness of Velazquez’s depictions of Spanish peasantry.”  –Maureen Mullarkey, At Katonah Museum, Celebrating the Quotidian, The New York Sun, April 17, 2008.

“Christopher Gallego transforms banal subjects such as rubber gloves, potatoes, and careworn interiors into timeless forms suffused with light. He reveals myriad textures and colors that are easily overlooked, such as the daylight from a window reflected in an egg yolk in a green glass bowl, or a muslin-covered mannequin surrounded by dust-filtered light… In the manner of Giorgio Morandi, Gallego paints objects that become portraits of a time and place defying categorization.”  -Anne R. Fabbri, Art in America, June/July 2005.
