It is with great sadness that we announce Sydney Ball passed away peacefully in the late hours of Sunday 5 March 2017. He was 83 years old.

We are very grieved to have lost our dear friend, our great mentor and this tremendous artist. But we are also so grateful for the many years that we had together, for his wonderful exhibitions, the many fun times at his house, for his passion, generosity, and for the colour that he brought to our lives.

Syd will be greatly missed by his family, loved ones and friends, and by his students and many admirers. He will be remembered for his enormous contribution to Australian Art.

"Well for me the holy trinity of colour painting is colour, space and light. Once you've got colour and space you are well on the road to getting magnificent light. You really are."  - Sydney Ball, 2012

We celebrate Sydney Ball.
