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.
