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.
Ink was used to draw lines in the background echoing and emphasizing the grain of the linen.

The shapes and colors were found by playing with layers of colored paper to find a dynamic that felt right. The color is linked to thoughts about music.

The visual shape and color of sound are ideas that emerge in addition to thinking about the layering of sound as related to the layering of color.
