Born and raised in La Jolla, California, artist Jeff Galinson was educated at UC Boulder and the New York Academy of Art.
As a painter, Jeffrey attends to the exploration, interpretation and presentation of the multifarious aspects of (mainly) natural objects; to their singular uniqueness, their relation to one another and to the formal demands of the rectangular canvas. Value and hue, form and composition are regarded an translated with pigment and brush in a way that is meant to both visually delight as well as draw the viewer into a deeper contemplation of the strange beauty of the natural world.
Says Galinson “I aspire to find a balance between realistic representation and abstract mark making. If I can create an image – a drawing or painting – that satisfies the eye, engages the mind, and summons an emotional response in the viewer, then I feel I’ve achieved my goal.”
