Frank Galuszka Works Biography

STATEMENT

My paintings seek after the condition of natural objects.  The subject, as in Large Pacific Landscape, may be representational, referring to the natural world, while the execution parallels it, with systems nesting within systems, as in an ecology.  Visual and material substance interact, as surface.  Relationships recede from the totality of a whole in phases of scale (of incident) toward the microscopic. Within the context of the whole scene, the individuality of parts is nevertheless upheld.  These paintings are wholly visual; they are meant to be understood through the eyes.
