Gary Passanise is a St. Louis based artist, but has exhibited works across the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Gary prefers to work with oils, wax, charred lumber, found objects, limestone, and steel.  Both the unique materials and their expertise application contribute to the intriguing surface quality achieved in Gary’s works. In both Manic Blue and Untitled #7, an interest in implied forms influences the composition. The two paintings work together to provide enough structure to invite the viewer in, while simultaneously existing in a reality parallel to our own. 

Gary Passanise is affiliated with Bruno David Galleries of St. Louis. 

Fun Fact: The reality we see is not how we actually see it. Our two eyes perceive two slightly different angles of the world, and our brains are constantly working to combine those two images into one. The brain is creating our perception every second, and fills in any blanks by using subconscious clues.
