"Palme’s highly prolific practice encompasses the fields of drawing, video, performance, and installation. The black and white pencil drawings, which constitute the bulk of Palme’s creative output, are produced at a minimum count of four thousand works on paper annually. Palme draws simultaneously with both his right and left hand, creating images which contain a wide spectrum of marks, energies, and references, ranging from finely rendered portraiture to chaotic abstraction.

There are multiple forces at work with each other and at odds with one another in the images Palme creates. The technique which he has adopted to make his work, drawing with both hands at once, is integral to the content of the work itself. There is always a battle taking place between that which we can comprehend or identify as a part of our history, and that which is shrouded in mystery, perhaps supernatural, and definitely powerful if not completely in control.

From Palme's citations, it is evident that he is moving between and connecting the spaces of the metaphysical, the historical, the scientific, the religious, and the philosophical.

In this intersection is not only a search for answers to large questions as exhaustive and epic as Palme’s practice itself, but also a space of transition which brings the viewer to the present through depicting the implications and effects of these dynamics of power and time on our lives."
