Sydney Ball: The Colour Paintings 1963–2007

11 November 200929 January 2010

A revered graduate of the South Australian School of Art, Syd Ball is one of Australia’s most acclaimed abstract painters, whose journey of discovery, experiment and artistic development was anchored in the celebrated vanguard movement that drove so many talented young artists to New York in the early 1960s, in search of the new.

This powerful and historically significant exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive, hard-cover colour catalogue, featuring an essay by Adelaide-based writer Wendy Walker and an interview with Sydney Ball by the exhibition’s curator, Anne Loxley.
