David Palliser’s exhibition ‘send nurse’, opened at Chapman and Bailey in Melbourne last night with this work being a highlight. The exhibition continues David’s exploration of gesture, tone, colour and space. They reflect David’s dedication to the subtleties of the painter’s craft and his work as a experimental musician.
With a seemingly perpetual visual play of elements, the works are anything but static. They reveal themselves slowly, reordering themselves in the viewer’s perception with any final resolution of the image, always postponed. Of particular interest to me are several works including the smaller works which seem to mark a development from David’s previous work. These have an exciting new fluidity which until now has been most evident in David’s drawings.
