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 earlier piece, the nestling organic forms are there, but the amount of negative shapes is very small. They were, however, important.
Paller was very focused on the colour, thinking of this painting being about blues - how to create a surface of varying blues using a few simple forms to move the eye around in a surprising way.
