Opening on Saturday, 27 October 3 - 5pm
"For me it's the scale which envelops the viewer; that whole nebula of colour, the ocean of colour, which just soaks you in." - Sydney Ball, 2014.
Sullivan+Strumpf Sydney is delighted to present an exhibition by major Australian abstract artist, Sydney Ball (1933 - 2017), the first exhibition of the artist's work since his passing. Planned during Bali's lifetime to mark what would have been the artist's 85th birthday, the exhibition will present large-scale works from Bali's last Infinex series, his final and never-before-seen body of work.
Comprising rigid geometric forms articulated in fields of contrasting colours, as Terence Maloon has written, the Infinex series relates to the "immense outflowing of joie de vivre" in the late works of many great artists, such as Monet's waterlilies or Matisse's cut-outs.
