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”
This painting is primarily about the layering of shapes and the resulting colour harmonies.
Shapes are painted over other shapes, revealing and concealing forms underneath.
One of his most favorite things about these paintings is the way the parts of the unconcealed under-shapes seem to jump off the canvas as if they were floating above everything else.
Those events are the most welcome surprise for him.
