A Stretch of Luck  Oil on canvas 36"x36"  2015




Recent paintings by John D. Gall bring forth an extension of his work done over the past 25 years but with a much more surreal influence within his subject matter.  Those familiar with his work may be surprised to see paintings rather than original prints (etching and relief) but John’s unique imagery or “artistic signature” is ever present in any medium he uses.  As John explains; “I was a painter for many years before attending Guilford College where, unexpectedly, I became seduced with making original prints.  I’m sure I will continue to create prints, but as I re-visit painting I have also found a renewed purpose and focus for painting.”

There is a playful, whimsical, yet serious nature in the images John creates, whereby man’s everyday stuggles seems to deal with the “choices” made during life.  You often see a recurring theme such as stealing or stopping time, loneliness, being impoverished, or trying to make sense of a dream.  There is even a suggestion of wishful thinking.  All the new paintings exhibit a heightened sense of color, being vibrant and rich.   Comments by Adam Cave, Adam Cave Fine Art, Raleigh, NC
