"Gary Milek uses 15th-century painting techniques of egg tempera paint made from scratch, paired with gold leaf. Throughout the centuries, gold has been used in art to symbolize opulence, wealth, and divinity. Though not directly related to spirituality, it is through this natural blend of mediums that Milek devotes himself to capturing divine moments within our everyday environment. The singular capabilities of Gary Milek are captured in Mt. Ascutney Triptych, which perfectly balances the blue and pink hues of light from the setting sun with the light that is reflected from the gold leaf. I have never witnessed a painting so effortlessly harness the natural light from its surroundings to directly enhance its luminous composition." - Gabe Chevalier, Sales & Marketing Associate
