Description

Widely recognised as one of their foremost painters, Brian Ballard’s show at the ArtisAnn Gallery features a selection of recently completed paintings.

Born in Belfast, Brian Ballard trained firstly at the College of Art, Belfast and then in Liverpool. He still lives in Belfast but spends long periods of time living and working in his house on the remote and rugged island of Inishfree, off the coast of Donegal.

Brian prefers those moments when the sun has infused the landscape with colour. He is interested in the contrasting colours and textures in simple subjects. Painting directly onto the canvas with vigorous brushstrokes, he uses bold slashes of rich colour with fluid paint in which the bristles always leave their mark of speed and pressure.

Please Note:
