Maureen Gallace
Stamford (Connecticut, USA), 1960
Gallace is an artist who works within the self-imposed con - fines of a rigorously limited scale and subject matter. She is a painter of small, unpeopled landscapes in which a modest number of elements - a house, a barn, bushes, grass, sky - recur with a quietly mesmerising insistence. In focusing on a particularly favored motif, the idealised form of a window - less white New England cottage, Gallace succeeds in iso - lating something universally familiar yet utterly mysterious. Maureen Gallace has exhibited internationally in solo and group shows at: The Art Institute of Chicago, Dallas Museum of Art, MoMA PS1, Whitney Biennial and in many other institutions and galleries.
