Nathaniel Galka "Unbridled Muses" Show Preview

Photos from the preview for Nathaniel Galka’s solo show at the gallery on May 6th.  

For those of you that couldn't make it, below is a better peek at his work on view.  

The public reception for Unbridled Muses will be held on Thursday, May 15 from 6-8 p.m at Gitana Rosa Chelsea. 

Nathaniel Galka's new series bridges the space between childhood fantasy and adult reality. The artist compares his largest paintings to those great cultural unifiers, flat screen televisions—they’re entertaining, and designed to be the center of attention in whatever space they occupy. Featuring shimmering zoomorphic creatures and glitter bombs–they have a mass appeal. 

Galka tends to move quickly through each body of work, exhausting its potential before moving on to follow his next muse. His high-speed style produces consistently unique works that illustrate his changing interests and progression as an artist.   

The exhibition will be on view through June 7, 2014.
