The Paradise [27]
2007
Douglas Hyde Gallery

b. 1960, Stamford, Connecticut.
 
Gallace is an artist who works within the self-imposed confines 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, a boat; bushes, grass, sky – recur with a quietly mesmerising insistence. In focusing on a particularly favoured motif, the idealised form of a windowless white New England cottage, Gallace succeeds in isolating something universally familiar yet utterly mysterious. Though instantly recognisable as a work by Gallace, each individual painting is a unique rumination on stillness and structure.
 
Since she began exhibiting in 1990, Gallace has had numerous solo exhibitions in public spaces throughout the US, and also in Britain, Europe and Japan. They include MoMA PS1 (2017); La Conservera, Ceuti (2011); the Art Institute of Chicago Museum (2006); the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin (2004, 2007); Dallas Museum of Art (2003) and the Museum Schloss-Hardenberg in Velbert, Germany (1996). Gallace has also had solo shows at Kerlin Gallery, Dublin; Maureen Paley, London; 303 Gallery, New York and Sprüth Magers, Munich. Group shows in which she has participated include September 11, MoMA PS1, New York (2011); For your eyes only, De Markten, Brussels; Whitney Biennial, New York (2010); FIFTY PERCENT SOLITUDE, Kerlin Gallery (2008); Ideal Standard Life, Spiral/Wacoal Art Center, Tokyo (1996) and Slow Art/Painting in New York Now, PS1, New York (1992). 
 
Gallace's work is represented in many collections, both public and private, including the collections of the Wadsworth Atheneum and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
