Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Gregory Pelizzari











The paintings and drawings in this body of work are representations of "emotional moments;" explorations of
the human condition. Both spiritual and introspective in purpose, I am interested in conveying the dynamics of relationships and the aloneness one must confront and accept in this world. It is with the embracing of that idea that brings us to the understanding of our oneness, our singular humanity and allows us to feel at peace to explore and express our loves, fears, wants, needs and hope.
These paintings possess a focus that reflects a rigorous training. What one perceives as polish is essentially obsessive preoccupation with allowing the image its own life.










For me, painting becomes a confirmation of experiences, a witnessing of events, a discovery of relationships. It is pure pleasure. Both spiritual and introspective in purpose, I am interested in conveying the dynamics of relationships and the aloneness one must confront and accept in this world. It is with the embracing of that idea that brings us to the understanding of our oneness, our singular humanity and allows us to feel at peace to explore and express our loves, fears, wants, needs and hope.
