Influenced by Greg’s experiences in New York and London, Greg Salvatori Gallery offers a clean visual space but without an intimidating atmosphere. This summer, the gallery will showcase Greg’s colorful, vibrant photography in both large dramatic prints, and smaller intimate images. He is planning four distinct series, starting in May and continuing through all September. It’s a space dedicated to Greg’s love of dramatic color and beautiful, provocative photographs. Whether in the precise large format prints on the wall, or the specially designed objects in the gallery gift shop, each part of the space is meant to be imaginative and playful.
PORTRAITS WITH STEAM
Current Exhibit, till July 28th
For his third exhibit of the summer, Greg Salvatori takes off from the the vibrant aesthetics of his Beards of New York book and brings you higher. And higher. And higher. Until you see the clouds.
Greg turns to beauty as a way to deal with the loss of his father earlier this year. He creates a fantastic sky populated by bearded men that recall the image of his father.
The result of his process is a series of arresting works: fiery colors, luminescent clouds of steam, majestic beards, sexy shapes.
Is this Heaven or is this Hell? Are these angels or Faustian demons? One thing is sure: Heaven is hot as Hell.
WITCH! WITCH! WITCH!
Provincetown, MA (June 21th, 2019) - After his strong opening in May, Greg Salvatori is launching his second show on the Summer Solstice, June 21st. The show is another fun and memorable series of anthropomorphic portraits, exploring pagan culture and witchcraft. Each picture is a manifestation of Greg’s imagination. He starts with a vision, an image in his mind. Then he designs the set and the precise lighting. When everything is ready Greg call’s in his “familiar” - Albert the yellow Lab - and the magic happens. This particular series celebrates Greg’s pagan heritage. “There is no better place to create this series,” he said. “Provincetown is a very special place, filled with the mystical and the magical” he added, “You feel it all around you here.”
Provincetown, MA (MAY 17th, 2019) - Greg opens the season poking fun at our leaders with an anthropomorphic portrait series featuring visual metaphors of power. The tone is playful but the question is inevitable: are these leaders of pack, top dogs, or just needy puppies asking for validation?
