Cynthia Penna, artistic director at ART1307 and curator wrote about Gary Paller’s work:
“The morphology of Gary Paller’s forms has its deepest roots in the unconscious. The softness of the geometric forms are, very clearly, retraceable to situations of the subconscious, buried in its hidden depths (…)
The beauty of Paller’s pictorial composition lies in the fact that it is purified of any other component that obstacles or distracts” the eye from the movement of the form. Paller’s research aims at the purity of the form and its movement in space, determined by the colour and by the relationship between colour and colour, or between colour and line.
It is this perfect balancing of volumes and colour that gives the spectator the peculiar sensation of being “cradled” in space, of being carried by a kind of soft waves towards a dreamy and unconscious world not unlike a maternal womb of absolute protection”
Gary Paller’s work was based until 2016 on fields of colour with usually few nuances and no element of light. His use of lines defined the spaces and outlined the transition from one colour to the next.
In this work, the forms are now simple orbs, some are solid while others are nearly invisible transparencies. The edges of the forms bleed into the unprimed canvas.
In Paller’s view, forms might suggest individuals or living organisms interacting with each other, those evocations as well as hearing the viewers’ interpretation fascinate him.
With this artwork, Paller also begins an exploration of long horizontal pieces.
