Sunday Pick: Brian Ballard

This is the work of Brian Ballard, an Irish painter who has been painting for many years.  The confidence in his gestural marks is beautiful.  I love the way he uses a light source to create flat shapes of color.  The harsh contrasts are a welcome change from paintings of the same subject matter that ooze atmosphere and flittery marks.  His work is some I've been looking at a bit recently in an effort to push my own work.
