‘Coastal’ is the new body of work by contemporary painter, Kristine Ballard. This new collection centres around the human fascination for the coastal rim of the ‘big blue’.
“It stands to reason that we feel a connection to water. Over 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by it and at least 50% of our bodies are made of it. There is an osmosis that happens when we are near it. We feel replenished. The process of painting this new body of work has given me the great priviledge to revisit these emotions through the power of paint and colour. My ambition is that these pieces can allow you to travel to your own waterscapes of joy, wonder and adventure and honour the mighty wonders of the sea from our coastal edges.”
