DESCRIPTION

Rather than directing the progression of his work, Nathaniel Galka allows the work to direct itself.  That is, the ³ebb and flow² process with which he creates pieces, such as those featured in Flora DomicileŠ, demonstrates a mentality of seamless transition‹no piece contains a clear beginning or end.

Such free development yields works characterized by a host of unique tensions, as vast planes of color collide with minute areas of refined detail, and unrestrained movement meets controlled stillness.  Like the nature that Galka¹s work evokes, the dissonant components of each piece evolve together, resulting in a balance that is ultimately harmonious.
