About the Tutor:
Kristine Ballard’s work is driven by colour. Selective colour palettes and disintegrated shapes define her unique style she calls ‘Fragmatism’. Her images float, dissolve and fragment across the canvas, and beauty is often camouflaged. Deconstructed shape and reconstructed colour is always the focus of her work.
Specialising in still life and landscape paintings, Ballard works at creating the perfect colour harmonies in each artwork. Based in Sydney, Australia she has chased colour around the world. Exhibiting both nationally and internationally she has also completed art residencies in New York, Venice and Monsalvat, Australia’s oldest art colony. Last year she was to reside in France on residency – alas Covid has postponed this and many planned shows and exhibits. In 2020 she was selected as a finalist in the Gosford Art Prize and the Waverley Woollahra 9×5 landscape Art Prize.
Kristine Ballard is also a well loved art educator, having been the Arts presenter of EdTV Australia and conducting many art functions and art mentoring programs. Be it in her own work or helping others find their own creative voice, she believes that colour has the power to enrich and uplift our lives. Her artworks invite you to escape into a world of colour that is always ‘bright beyond beige.’
