Burlington City Arts

Galen Cheney: Street Level

Vermont artist Galen Cheney creates abstract paintings using a multi-layered technique that made them chaotic, vibrant and dense. Drawing inspiration from Aramaic script and urban graffiti, Cheney’s ethereal landscapes evoked the emerging sense of hybridization encapsulated by contemporary culture and global society.
