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 is part of a series of gouaches on paper and vellum created while working in Umbria, Italy during the summer of 2012. These pieces were inspired by Gourlay's response to the surrounding color and the geometry of the architecture. The central element is both an open space and a contained space like a courtyard. The line around this varies in thickness and shape creating different dynamics between the forms.
