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”
In this painting, Paller was experimenting with a layering concept of painting his nestling forms.
A layer of negative nestling forms would reveal in a seemingly natural way those original forms.
Parts would be revealed, rhythms would be attained.
This was not the direct line upon which his work would evolve, but it would lead him to useful ways of thinking about overpainting.
