The Silent Soul was inspired by a solitary walk in an centuries-old forest. While there, Oriano Galloni found himself surrounded by luminous, ethereal presences among the ancient soaring trees. The experience was so powerful that it continues to influence the artist's work today.
For decades, Galloni has sought to give form to the purity and unity of Presence experienced in sacred, intangible moments.
His hope is that the Silent Soul will serve as points of communication connecting our physical and spiritual worlds.
