At the heart of David Pallier’s practice is the continuing exploration of abstract painting – and the creation of exhilarating visual experiences. Through the dynamic combination of different brushwork, from flat, bold fields and simple patterns of pure colour, to washes, splatters and fine lines, Palliser creates spaces that twist and turn, bend in upon themselves, and bring disparate elements into harmony.
David Palliser was born in Melbourne in 1960, where he continues to live and work. He has an extensive history, presenting solo exhibitions at a number of local galleries including Michael Wardell Gallery, Temple Studio and Crossley and Scott over the past two decades, as well as at Kaliman Gallery in Sydney. He was included in the important ‘Imagine’ exhibition at the Heidi Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne in 2006, curated by Zara Stanhope, and his work is represented by major public and private collections in Australia, including the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria and the John McBride Collection.
