This cache of works are manifestations of memory whereby life is a process with experiences driving and affecting memory. Living in a multidimensional reality, Christian Michael Gallegos transcribes an autobiographical language of memory and experience delivering single plane views gathered from a lifetime.
The lack of depth is an allusion to a view from 20,000 ft high where dimensions and depth collapse. Entranced by this experience, dimensions collapse and tableaus exist on one homogenized plane of view. Ostensibly transposing images into this one-dimensional plane with color, impasto, layering, and line, Christian coaxes the mind to perceive, if not read, the depth and dimensions of his work, while at the same time, sharing intimate moments from his life.
