Pauline Galiana is a French-born artist who, having moved from Paris to New York, found the light brilliant and has stayed. She pursued her Master of Fine Arts, at ESAG in Paris, and has an Art Business Certificate From Christie’s Education NY.


I work simultaneously on distinct bodies of work, from collages to paintings, ephemeral installations to small-scale sculptures. I focus on actively engaging the viewer in a visual conversation.  The concept of poetic narration runs through my work, as does a reflection on the sources of, and how one recycles, creative energy.  I use literal leftovers from different stages of my own work -- ideas, forms, emotions or material.  Color drives my instinctive state of mind: hue, shade, tone, pigment, stain, wash, all bring vividness and an inspirational excitement, though my fascination for the grid taps into the broader theme of the mind's attempt to negotiate with chaos.
