This event has ended.

Aesop is the earliest of the paintings in this exhibition, and is the most closely related to the prior cycle of work titled Traces of Absence that was presented in his exhibition at Texas Gallery in Houston several years ago. Each painting in that series featured an object that served to anchor a layered composition of subtly modulated colored fields, freehand brushstrokes and a scatter of rose petals and numbers across the surface.
The petals in Aesop are paired with numbers that, like the yardstick, advance from one to thirty-six, and are a readily legible metaphor for the passage of our fleeting measure of time. Palazzolo’s paintings develop slowly as he builds and refines the layers, and this painting was still on the easel in the spring of 2011 when he learned that his close friend of forty years, painter Stephen Mueller, had been diagnosed with cancer.
