Palmer works in a variety of media and practises a minimal aesthetic.
However, her works are never empty or cold as is the case with some
minimalist art. Rather, subtle emotional states are hinted at, while
a kind of physical disequilibrium is evoked. Palmer creates imagined
spaces with specific reference to the actual space that the work
inhabits. For The Physics Room, she has created site specific works
which reflect the physical nature of the surroundings, be it in
the pattern of the brick wall, or in the blue of sky glimpsed through
As the artist herself puts it:
"Empty spaces, waiting spaces, floors no one dances on, reflection,
displacement, the moment, of suspension, where doubt is cast, the
fear of falling, of waiting, desiring more."
