Peter Gallo

Peter Gallo is a mixed-media artist, social worker, and writer living and working in Hyde Park, Vermont. He is most known for his combination of abstract and figurative elements and his use of unconventional materials, such as found photographs, buttons, found philosophical and poetic texts, raw canvas, dental floss, and chicken bones. Gallo's work addresses politics, literature, and art history, and has been compared to post-minimalist artist Ree Morton and post-punk band Joy Division. His paintings are intentionally dilapidated to accentuate the work as an object in itself, and serve as a commentary on contemporary matters through use of text, advertisements, drawings, and expressive brushstrokes.


Gallo is a member of the Grass Roots Art and Community Effort (GRACE) in Vermont. His work has appeared in exhibitions at White Columns, Sunday L.E.S., Steven Kasher Gallery, and Horton Gallery in New York, Wendy Cooper Gallery in Chicago, Francis Reynolds Gallery in London, and Goff + Rosenthal in Berlin. He is represented by Horton Gallery in New York. Gallo's art criticism has appeared in Art in America and Art New England
