Michael Gallagher the artist is someone I just discovered. These pieces are from a recent show called Hallucination Engine. This contemporary art reminds me of something I would see from the 50’s or 60′ with just a little more saturation of color. I find it interesting that Michael can paint in whatever style he is compelled to. Some of his past works are realistic still lifes. Any of these current works would look right at home in a mis century home. I could see one in the entry way welcoming everyone that walks in. I like that this video discusses his work and you learn the reason.
