Vermont-based artist Peter Gallo’s works oscillate freely between painting, drawing, collage, and sculpture. Chock-full of literary, art historical, cultural, political and musical references (and detours) Gallo’s works, when seen together, combine to create a poetic, albeit labyrinthine, mise-en-scene.
Peter Gallo lives and works in Hyde Park, Vermont. Peter is a doctoral candidate in art history at Concordia University in Montreal, where he isalso a part-time member of the faculty. He also works as a psychiatric social worker in a rural health care agency in northern Vermont, and is a member of the Grass Roots Art and Community Efforts in Hardwick. He recently curated a retrospective of long-time friend and visionary artist Gayleen Aiken for SUNDAY. He has authored reviews and articles have appeared in Art in America and Art New England. His own work has been reviewed in the New York Times, Frieze, Artforum, and Art in America.
