Meet our artists

Genesis is the first Group Show of our Gallery in Montclair, so we want our blog followers to know about our artists who participated, as well as having a reference of their artistic work.

We aspire in Montclair to present international art to enrich the cultural offer, in addition, for the enjoyment of art lovers and collectors. We will have individual, group exhibitions and we will present other art proposals and related activities, such as: talks with international curators, art critics and artists, performances, fashion shows, book presentations and private activities.

If you are an art lover, I invite you to visit our blog and social media pages where we will announce our activities and future exhibitions.

"Interspaces" by Lia Galletti

At Julian Espinal Art Project, we are honored to present the Cuban artist Lia Galletti, one of the most important exponents of Latin American Expressionism. Welcome!

Born in Havana, Cuba, in 1943, Lia Galletti is a painter and printmaker. She left the island with her family at the age of 17 and moved to New York, where she finished her education and started to paint and exhibit her work in New York’s Greenwich Village and other venues on the east coast. 

Her father, also an artist, influenced her path towards becoming an artist as she watched him paint as a child. Lia is an abstract artist and has been painting ever since, developing her individual style and technique. She studied printmaking within the disciplines of etching, drypoint, linocut, silkscreen and monoprint. Lia exhibited her work and received an award at The Boston Printmakers, Brockton Art Museum, Boston, MA (1988). Her work is in their collection, as well as in the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña, where she participated at the Ibero American Printmaking Biennial of San Juan, Puerto Rico. She recently participated in the Tokyo International Mini Print Triennial at Tama Art University Museum, Tokyo, Japan.

With an extensive career and a life dedicated to the arts, Julián Espinal Art Project will be presenting from March 16 to April 10, the individual exhibition “INTERSPACES” by the artist Lia Galletti.

CAVE / Acrylic on canvas / 50” x 40” / 2018

The show is made up of the artist’s work for the past three years in which we can see a continuous evolution, both in the color palette and in the intensity of the technique (action painting and dripping) that is characteristic of its pictorial language.

INTERSTELLAR / Acrylic on canvas / 30” x 40” / 2018

Born in Havana, Cuba and based in Miami, Florida, where she has her studio, Lia has always projected herself with strength and vitality, into the visual creative cosmos, both nationally and internationally, reaping achievements and attracting the attention of collectors and museums.

NO MÁS / Acrylic on canvas / 40” x 50” / 2018

In this exhibition we will be presenting several large and monumental paintings that will impact the viewer due to their colorful and expressive power.

AVALANCHE
Acrylic on unstretched canvas / 66” x 48” / 2019

Among the future projects, as early as 2020, Julian Espinal Art Project will produce with Lia Galletti, the retrospective exhibition of her life-work, to be held in Miami and then at our gallery in Montclair, New Jersey, and the publication and launching of a book with her work.

SUNRISE / Acrylic on unstretched canvas / 77” x 71” / 2019

"When she took her first steps in art, Lia Galletti (1943) was most likely exposed to the last swipes of Informalism. Henceforward, Abstraction brands her as she integrates into its Expressionist dimension, with the result that these aspects and gestural elements lead her to dabble as well in New Expressionist representation that in addition appropriates distant chords of the Cobra Group. One never tires of searching for faces in this abstract style, as when we try to read the clouds, a camouflage of colors and forms from which we can unravel feelings and secrets. Lia, a mature and consummate artist, may be defined as an Imaginist who convinces us that Action Painting can also be figurative in style."
Aldo Menéndez
Art Curator and Critic
Miami, April 18, 2016

FLOW / Acrylic on canvas / 50” x 40” / 2019

"Lia Galletti, painter and designer, makes sporadic inroads in the figure though the gestural power of the representation keeps them near abstraction. An artist with a long and fruitful career, abstraction is ostensibly the best path to express herself. Her paintings offer the viewer a banquet of color, rich visual textures, dynamic forms that swirl together or against each other with jubilant intensity. Surprisingly, her black and white paintings, albeit austere, are equally authentic. Her art conveys a wide range of nuanced emotions, a spiritual harvest that undoubtedly stems from profound life experiences, which are never always good. Nonetheless, she transforms these raw subjective materials, valiantly and brilliantly, in ways devoid of negativity. An art that rewards the viewer with clarity and visual pleasure."

Marie-Laure Romanet (m'lor), born in 1967 in France.
I'm a very new artist and discovered painting father late. It began in 2011 and I fell in love and couldn't stop to paint. My first steps were with oil paints as a medium and then moved on to acrylic paints and collages. I ceased working with collage...

I 'm now doing abstract paintings. I opened the door to Abstract expressionism. I can find an open expression of my emotions and feelings, allowing my unconscious to wheal up and play out into the canvas, without restrictions of censure. Increasingly painting on larger canvases, I love to explore the open space and freedom of expression this allows...
