Alberto Galvez

Alberto Galvez is known for his stunning monumental oil paintings of faces that seem at once timeless and contemporary. Employing Renaissance painting techniques, Galvez glazes translucent colors in fine layers over monochromatic lower registers which gives his work a classical nature and ethereal glow. In his paintings, centuries of time and the western art historical tradition conflate, leaving the viewer to ponder if they are classical women transposed into a modern context, modern women infused with the souls of ancient muses, or if they have been lifted out to time altogether and speak directly to something more fundamental.
