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."

ABSTRACT PAINTING
The below information will only be used to help you communicate with the gallery. The more information you provide, the faster and more likely you will get an answer.
This piece is inspired by Gourlay's thoughts about color, shape and music.

The shapes are found by playing with layers of colored paper to find a dynamic that feels right.

Using simple elements, she is trying to convey her feelings and emotions. The color that wraps around the central shape gets squeezed or expanded, shortened or lengthened as the intensity may grow strong and loud or soft and quiet.
