A Little Intro
My name is Janet Gallo. I was born in Havana, Cuba and grew up in Camaguey, where my ancestors settled more than a century ago at the time when Cuba was a colony of Spain. I was the only daughter from the marriage of two doctors trained after the Cuban revolution. My mother was a medical doctor and my father a veterinarian. My parents instilled in me the love for nature, animals, art and knowledge.
At age 12 I enrolled at Luis Casas Romero, a school specializing in fine arts in Camaguey. For the next three years I received lessons in various techniques of representation such as watercolor, sculpture, engraving, drawing with pencil and charcoal and some notions of European art and Cuban syncretism. This school was a wonderful experience because it introduced to me the world of art and I met many artists who have made a lasting impact on me, both personally and professionally.
My artistic work is a form of self-exploration and healing, with emphasis on spontaneity as a renunciation of control, and the cultivation of a contemplative condition devoid of ego that evokes more than anything the scope of inspiration and creative imagination as concepts that are applied with greater property to the field of spiritual search than to the styles of art and culture. I am developing the ability to maintain a spiritual awareness and recover the ability to experiment.
