'Understory', ke poʻo inoa ʻO ka hōʻike ʻana o Helena Gorey i nā kiʻi pena a me nā hana ma ka pepa, ʻaʻole wale i nā kiʻi i kahi hōʻiliʻili o nā hana akā hāʻawi i kahi mīkini no ka nānā ʻana. Hōʻike ka ʻōlelo a ka mea pena a me nā poʻo inoa pākahi i nā ʻano a me nā hiʻohiʻona o kahi wahi; maʻamau a hiki i nā wahi āpau a kikoʻī e lawe i ka hoʻohanohano mau a me ka mahalo i ka ʻāina kūlohelohe. Hoʻopaʻa nā kiʻi pena a Gorey i kekahi mea ma waena o ka manaʻo o kahi, ka home mua o nā hana, ko lākou hānau ʻana, ko lākou kumu i lilo ai, a me ka ʻike o ka launa pū ʻana me lākou. ʻIke lākou i nā moʻolelo o ka abstraction, ʻo ia hoʻi ʻo Mark Rothko (1903-1970), ma ke ʻano he hanana o ka nānā ʻana, e like me nā ʻāpana hana i hoʻoholo ʻia. 

Hoʻomaopopo ka ʻike hou ʻana o ka abstraction i ka hiki i ka pena ke haʻi mele i kahi ʻike ʻike ʻole ʻia, a i ʻole ʻike ʻole ʻia e ka mea pena wale nō. Hana ʻo Gorey i ke kaiapuni kūlohelohe, i hōʻike ʻia e nā kiʻi liʻiliʻi ʻeleʻele a keʻokeʻo o kāna hana i hōʻike ʻia ma ke komo ʻana i ka hōʻike.  Ua kau ʻia, Proscenium (2017) hoʻonani i kahi palena mānoanoa, ʻeleʻele e hoʻoneʻe ana i kahi hue ʻulaʻula hohonu e nānā ana ma ka ʻaoʻao o ka ʻili a ʻike mālie i nā ʻāpana, kahi e ʻae ai ka maka - kākoʻo ʻia e kahi ʻāpana keʻokeʻo keʻokeʻo mehana o ka mea ʻole. . 

Hoʻonohonoho ʻia kahi pūʻulu o nā hana i kahi ʻāina kūlohelohe. Kākoʻo ʻia ka poʻo keʻokeʻo e nā lau lau a me ka poni. ʻO nā hue paʻa akā ʻaʻole hiki ke hoʻopaʻa ʻia i ka pā i ka mea i hiki ke lilo i luna o ka lewa. Ua puka mai nā ʻōmaʻomaʻo manaʻo a me ka ulu honua i nā ʻano like Spinney. Hāʻawi ʻo Blues i ka lā a me nā hola pōʻeleʻele, e kau ʻoluʻolu ana i ka wā e kāʻei ana i ka pae o ka maka. ʻO Blossom Loaʻa iā ia kona laina horizon ponoʻī, e kono ana i ka mea nānā e ʻimi iā ia mai kahi mamao. He ʻāpana liʻiliʻi, ʻulaʻula ʻālohilohi, nona ke poʻo inoa lāʻau lāʻau, i hoʻohālike i ke kumu o ka honua a me kahi hana poni hohonu, Brindled, hilinaʻi ma ka paia, e hoʻolōʻihi ana i kahi moʻo palena ʻole i kēia manawa, e kaʻana like ana i ka ʻāina hale kiʻi e like me ka mea e pili ana me ia.

ʻO ka laulā o ka lani a me nā kikoʻī o kahi honua ma lalo o ka wāwae i lawe ʻia ma kahi ʻaoʻao ma ka pālākiō like; e hiamoe ana (2017) he keʻokeʻo keʻokeʻo, e like me ka hau i paʻa i ka ʻili o ka lewa, ʻoiai ka limu Ua ʻoi aku ka maikaʻi o ka hoʻopau ʻana, e kulu ana i nā ʻōmaʻomaʻo hoʻowalewale, me he mea lā e hana ana i nā puʻu kiʻekiʻe mai loko mai o ke kapena kūlohelohe. Hoʻokani ʻia ke olonā kala nutmeg me ka lime neon a me nā kala pohihihi ma Seed. Bindweed (2011) a me ka BlackBerry (2013) hōʻike i ke ʻano o ka hoʻokolohua ʻana o Gorey me ka hoʻoholo ʻana i ka haku mele, e hāʻawi ana i kahi ʻano like ʻole. Kalo ʻO ia paha kekahi o nā hana ʻālohilohi loa, e hoʻōho ana i nā melemele ʻōlinolino i loaʻa i ka hana a William McKeown (1962-2011) ma ʻaneʻi wale nō, ʻālohilohi nā ʻano keʻokeʻo me he mea lā ua loaʻa i nā melemele a McKeown. Ua like nā kiʻi pena i hōʻike ʻia me he puka aniani lā, ʻaʻole wale lākou i hāʻawi mai i ke ʻano o ka nānā ʻana ma loko, akā i ke ʻano o ka nānā ʻana i lalo, ma lalo o ka noi a ka mea pena, kāna mau hoʻoholo, kona nānā ʻana a me kāna ʻike ola ʻana i ka ʻāina kūlohelohe. Ma o kēia, hōʻike ʻo ia i kona nānā ʻana i nā ʻokoʻa maʻalahi o ka mālamalama a me ka fulcrum o ka lima, ka pulupulu, a me ka ʻili. 

ʻO kahi ʻāpana ʻokoʻa, hoʻoili ʻia paha, i loko o ka lumi i hana maikaʻi loa, ʻo ia ka Caoimhe Kilfeather. Akā he Hercules (2010), he nui o ka lanahu e puka mai ana mai ka paia mai, i kau ʻia ma kahi kiʻekiʻe liminal me ka manaʻo e like me ke kuhi ʻana a i ʻole kahi puʻupuʻu pōkole a pehu. Aia kekahi ʻano like i ke kino o ke ʻano i loko o ka pūʻulu ʻaila a Gorey ma nā ʻeke ʻuala kahi i hōʻike ʻia ai nā leo a me nā laina i nā crinkles a me nā creases.

He ʻelima mau hana ma ka pepa i hoʻokani ʻia e Agnes Martin (1912-2004). Lawe ʻia nā ʻāpana wai liʻiliʻi i ka lewa i kēlā me kēia, e hoʻonui i nā mea i hiki ke ʻike ʻia. Ua hōʻike ʻia kahi lumi ʻelua i nā hana liʻiliʻi i kapa ʻia Pouli IV, haʻahaʻa ma nā pahu bulldog, i hui pū me nā hana ʻaila nui aʻe, lani (2017) a me ka (2017), ka mea i hāʻawi i kahi ʻokoʻa loa o ka pō a me ke ao, me he mea lā e hoʻohālikelike ana i ka lani ʻaʻole hiki iā mākou ke ʻike i ka pō, a me ka lani i laila.

ʻO kaʻu mea e ʻike ai e pili ana i ke kiʻi pena a Gorey, ʻo ia ke ʻano o kāna hoʻolauna mua ʻana i ke kala i ka hoʻohana hope ʻana o ka pena, e hoʻohui i nā hoʻoholo mua i nā pae hope o ka hana. Ke nānā ka maka i ka waihoʻoluʻu o lalo, hiki mai ka hilinaʻi i ka mea ʻike ʻole, e hoʻolilo i ka ʻili i mea hanu. Ua hele pū kekahi ʻano palapala, me nā palapala hōʻikeʻike mua a Gorey, i mea e hoʻomanaʻo ai i ke koʻikoʻi o kēia hana, kona mōʻaukala ponoʻī, a pehea e hiki ai i ka abstraction ke hoʻolōʻihi, a hiki ke lawe ʻia, ke ʻano o kahi kikoʻī.

He mea kākau kiʻi ʻo Jennie Taylor e noho ana a e hana ana ma Dublin.
