Notes from the Archive: The concept of organic form has often been a point of inspiration for Paley's work through the years. Both his admiration for Art Nouveau and fascination with the layering of shapes and forms in the botanical realm continue to intrigue him. "Interlace 2003", is an exploration of light and shadow with jagged edges against rounded natural forms playing off each other in a unified, multi-layered arrangement. Ten years later in his exhibition of thirteen sculptures installed on Park Ave in New York City, these themes were revisited in the major centerpiece of the exhibition titled "Progression". His largest horizontal sculpture to date, it was installed at 52nd Street in front of the iconic Seagram Building. Reaching forty-four feet in length this major sculpture further explored the play of light and shadow across its white surface. "Interlace" embodies the genesis of one of Paley's recurring decorative themes and offers a glimpse into his creative process.
