Ralph Gelbert Call Me Gelbert

Ralph Gelbert’s canvases explode with exuberant, uninhibited color, the effect of which can be so striking that viewers may find themselves taking an involuntarily step back. Materiality and presence of color are at the heart of Gelbert’s painting technique. The context between surface as carrier of meaning and surface as site of the painterly aesthetic event is constantly rede ned and recalibrated during the painting process ... Gelbert’s works overwhelm the viewer and pursue a painterly strategy that finds its own way to negotiate the demarcation lines of the great schools of the past. At the same time, he is committed solely to his own aesthetic, his own creative drive, constantly discovering surprising, contemporary painterly means of expression that draw on the experiences of generations of painters from the Renaissance to street art. (Excerpt from: Martin Stather, Alla Prima)
