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”
Before 2016, Gary Paller’s work was based on fields of colour with few nuances and usually little or no element of light.
However, in this soft, minimal composition, shapes are defined by soft blurry edges, and the brilliant yellow form is a powerful light in itself. One imagines that if this painting were placed in a dark room, the yellow would provide enough light to help you see your way through.
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.
