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 piece is part of a series begun in 2012 and is inspired by Elizabeth Gourlay's interest in color, music and architecture.

The paintings grow out of the works on paper, where the ideas originate. The forms are geometric and relate to architecture, but are not hard-edged as she allows gesture in creating edges and layers.

The color relates to music as Gourlay played with quantities in the structural bars. She is wondering what the bright green sounds like and the blue-gray when pushed down by the heavier dark gray.
