FROM THE ARTIST'S STUDIO
James Panero, executive editor of the New Criterion, reviewing one of her shows, says about Gourlay’s work: “For Gourlay the painterly sound is rhythmic. She mutes her colors of melody to emphasize the syncopation of her forms. In her large square canvases, often named after instruments, she uses collage to layer horizontal strips of paper that have been tinted along their edges, then adds additional squares of paint like regular punctuations. In other examples she stacks her square blocks of color. In others she plucks an edge into a triangle. The overall results are quiet and harmonic, like an ensemble of world music in otherworldly form, here arranged in sublime surroundings."

This painting is part of a series that explores quieter elements of music combined with thoughts about fluidity and colors found in nature.

The drawn and painted vertical lines strum beneath the broader breathing bands of washed color.

Narrower ink lines are sharper gestural marks that allow the horizontal to form a depth within the piece which contains the firmer verticals.
