Galeria Adelmo is proud to present an exhibition of recent paintings by Miami-based visual artist Lia Galletti. The exhibition will open to the public with an artist’s reception on Friday, July 27, 2018 and will be on view through August 28, 2018.
Abstract expressionism will be unleashed by the artist, Lia Galletti, at Galeria Adelmo this coming July 27 at her Opening exhibition. Lia Galletti is a painter and printmaker who was born in Havana, Cuba. She has been heavily influenced by her father who was an artist.
For Galletti, the most complex messages are encoded in the most simple of forms. She does not aim to present viewers with a particular narrative, but prefers her work to evoke feelings that are similar to what she paints on her canvas. Color is vital to express these nuances and variation in tones enable her to portray the continual movement of our emotions. “Color is like a melody, composed of mental images, of the journey of feelings and of moments lived.”
Lia starts a painting by ‘mapping’ her canvas with the outline of an expression or shape, then developing an image that borders between abstraction and reality. She applies many layers of paint, brushing the canvas in a freely expressive way before her abstract form materializes.
Lia Galletti has exhibited widely across America, in special venues like Art Miami and Art America in Miami, Florida. Her work is housed in several public and private collections, including Bacardi International and the Art Museum of the Americas at the Organization of American States in Washington, D.C.
