BALLARD Kristine
Kristine Ballard’s work is driven by colour. As an Australian
contemporary painter her artworks celebrate the beauty and
wonder of the natural world. The results are expressive landscape and still life paintings created in her unique style called ‘Fragmatism’. Here images are fragmented, they merge, melt and dance into each other.

Perspective takes many twist and turns. Elements float
throughout themulti-layered compositions. Her dedication to colour radiates in every artwork. Ballard has been chasing colour around the globe, exhibiting her art nationally and nternationally. She has completed art residencies and been awarded art
scholarships at the world renowned Art Students League of New York and also in Venice, Italy and France. In Australia, residencies
completed include time at Monsalvat (Australia’s oldest art colony) and at Mornington’s historic Police Point Residency. This year she has continued to extend her practice on residency at the Nancy Fairfax Art Residency at the Tweed River Art Gallery and in 2025 she will return to France to catch the colours of the South at the NG Art Residency Program. Kristine Ballard has been a finalist in many prestigious art shows throughout her art career including Fishers’ Ghost Art Prize, Gosford Art Prize, Heysen Landscape Art Prize and Georges River Art Prize. She was recently awarded the ‘2023 Medal of Distinction’ at the Royal Art Society of NSW judged by Mosman Art Director John Cheeseman. Ballard believes life is better lived ‘bright beyond beige’. The canvas is her stage. Colour is her symphony. Her artworks are designed to lift your spirits and allow you to wonder. Each piece is a reminder that all of us deserve a colourful life and that the world is a truly magical place to be.
