Richard Ballard, British (1951 - )

 

Richard Ballard is a Paris-based British artist who has exhibited in France, Germany, Switzerland, Australia and the United States.Ballard’s work is included in numerous collections around the world.Recent awards include First Place in the Royal Watercolour Society's 21st Century Watercolour competition.The Royal Watercolour Society is the first and oldest watercolour association in the world.

“Ballard seems particularly concerned with the moment in which an object in a certain light can hover in a blur of perceptual uncertainty that almost allows it to disintegrate or to become something else . . . Somehow we are able to peer into Ballard’s paint as we might the sky itself.Among clouds, fields, forests, and shores, the light Ballard reflects seems born of the enigma of mere presence.”
