David Palmer’s single brushstroke paintings transgress the classical caricature of brushstrokes by painters such as Roy Lichtenstein and James Nares. Palmer’s single brushstroke work takes action painting into a new territory where Pollock’s metaphor of the artist as nature meets the realm of artificial perfection. At the antipode of instant but timeless accumulation of painting drips, Palmer’s extreme abstractions are a single movement of energy . The fusion of paint and body “climaxes” in spins that turn paint into erotic feelings.
