Gary Paller is an American contemporary artist born in 1953. In his practice Paller plays with forms and colours creating vivid abstractions. His works are typically marked by fields of colour without elements of light. He works with acrylic, ink, graphite or pencils on canvas and paper but also makes monotypes and prints.
