Subliminal Spiritualism

image by Veronica V. Jones

Randy Gallegos

A blond woman with wings in a purple and white dress looks hopefully upward. A tattooed elfin man crouches in the trees. A pale woman with white hair and blue robes holds a swirling white and blue orb. A woman in heavy armor wields a large sword.

Understanding the complex rhythms of nature can be a lifelong pursuit. The ebb and flow of a stream, the deliberate dance of a cloud, the graceful arch of a branch… these mysteries are revealed to very few individuals. Randy Gallegos gives every indication that he is one of those learned few who understand the ways of the natural world.

With an eye for dramatic lighting and bold colors to draw in the viewer, Mr Gallegos captures titanic battles and personal moments with equal skill. It is his connection to something greater, however, that is the true lifeblood of his work.

His detailed figures — though frequently dynamic¬† — are often at rest or just slightly off-balance. These people are certainly powerful, but they struggle with their disconnection from the primal energies of the universe. Randy reveals these energies, however, in the dramatic swirls of fabrics and in complex, organic swaths of smoke and wood. Through these seemingly secondary elements, he hides powerful magic and subtle spiritualism in plain sight.
