An Intimate Link

Art and politics are intimately linked.
That statement may seem obvious, but the political can easily be hidden within a work of art, and may take discernment to uncover. If viewed from the correct perspective, every masterpiece has a political subtext. 
Renaissance masterpieces commissioned by the Church and royalty were tools of propaganda used to control the minds and hearts of the people. Only a rare few outstanding artists were given the privilege of creating for the Vatican or the elite, and often tucked revolutionary ideas among the folds of satin and the pathos and emotion of Christian art.  
Hollow Pursuits, Michael Kerbow
Many contemporary artists embrace the power of art to not only comment on current political and cultural issues, but also to influence thought and perception through their artwork.   
A concept can be communicated through the beautiful, as well as through shock. Often, the beautiful may be even more effective at transferring an idea from the mind of the artist to the viewer. After all, who hasn’t turned away from a work, when that may be the last thing the artist wants? 
This is not meant to denigrate those who work via raw emotion or who are compelled to reflect back to us aspects of the ugly that permeate our culture. Each artist has a unique perspective and a unique approach, and may travel through several ‘phases’ during their career. I haven't heard of a single artist who feels complete, or completely satisfied with their process, and who doesn’t have more to say.

Galri Montaj supports the voices of artists, emerging or otherwise, who perceive the world through the apertures of skepticism, outrage, joy, and wonder. 
If you haven't yet found your ‘voice’, continue until you do. Our voices change through time and experience. As artists and as human beings, we are never done.

Happier than I expected...




Letting go of my identity as an artist representative makes me happier than I expected. 
Representing artists was an unmatched experience that eventually left me feeling less than fulfilled. The reasons for this change of heart are myriad, so I will keep it short and to the point.  
REASON #1: It makes me happy because I found that representing other artists, which I once used to love, was no longer satisfying that deepest creative part of myself. 
REASON #2: After numerous years working to bring much needed attention to truly deserving artists, I realized that a rep cannot live on praise alone, and neither can an artist.  
REASON #3: The first year was exciting and gratifying beyond expectation, with artists from as far away and diverse New York, Texas, Hawai'i, and Australia. I found that the self-imposed pace of 50-60 hour weeks for any great length of time was unrealistic. At two years, I reached my limit, with a lot of satisfaction during that time.
Extraordinary artists  
Extraordinary artists showed up who appreciated what I was doing, and who got coveted exposure and name recognition because of it. I'm happy to have represented each of you.
REASON #4: Attempting to sell art, the ultimate luxury in many minds, in the midst of a recession was a bit of a fool's errand. Happily, things are looking up for the art market, but not before my enthusiasm ran dry, and fortunate for the next owner of Galri Montaj!
So, yes. Galri Montaj is on the market!
