Gabriele Evertz ...uses the periodic structure of the stripe as her primary vehicle ... In her paintings, linear bands of color intersect at carefully calibrated intervals to create shifting and vibrating optical mixtures. In Motion Parallax, two opposing stripe patterns, one vertical, and the other horizontal, meet at a diagonal seam of the composition. The resulting, subtle misalignment of color produces a spatial ambiguity that holds both halves in delicate tension. This unsettling sensation is amplified by the unusual rhomboid format of the painting. Evertz's shaped canvas, a direct link to her Op forebears Noland and Riley, skews our senses of the surrounding space, and by extension of our body, creating an optical experience with corporeal reverberations.
