WHAT IS FRAGMATISM? (frag • ma • tism) (Quoted the artist Kristine Ballard for the best definition below) “An artistic style based on the concept that our perceptions are often a compilation of reality and experience. What we remember is a morphed idea of the truth. Images disintegrate and fragment on the picture plane." ~ KRISTINE BALLARD

Kristine Ballard signature style fragmatism captures the viewer with the use of dynamic design in the compositions. Having a Bachelor of Design at the University of Newcastle with a background of corporate graphic design, she creates a balance and movement in her art pieces. Ballard brings her travels from Spain, France, The United States and Fiji to inspire her for the exhibition. Her collection brings a new meaning for colour as she places a methodical approach to the placement of the paint. The dance that she creates with her strokes has an energy that brings forth a life of their own. In 2007 Ballard went full time as a fine artist with the help of coaching from ArtSHINE.

Join us this Saturday @ the reception to learn more about the gallery and this fantastic artist.
