About the artist:
A native of suburban Philadelphia, artist Lance Balderson now resides in Ocean View, New Jersey. Lance is a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University School of Architecture and has developed a style of painting that incorporates layers of color with overlapping shapes and forms that reference his previous architectural career. His more recent work is rooted in the basic forms of nature. Sensitive manipulation of brushwork on light filled canvases catapult the viewer into the inner visions of the creative mind. Simply handled, yet sophisticated in concept, the artist is able to use subtle color schemes combined with bold compositions to create a soothing yet dramatic image. Simplicity through color, forms and compositions characterizes most of his acrylic paintings.
