Any magical power or process of transmuting a common substance into a substance of great value.
That pretty much sums up surrealist , collage/mixed media artist, David Ball. His creations come to life by way of layering, texturizing and adhering... all while reinventing otherworldly landscapes that engage the viewer into what can only be described as nothing short of visual alchemy".
A CERTAIN REALITY “A Certain Reality” explores the spaces between reality and imagined perceptions, where characters bear witness to an internal narrative of memories and relationships. This exhibition features three artists that create delicate, yet complex ethereal landscapes and characters, including mixed-media collages from David Ball and paintings from Jennifer Davis and Megan Kimber.

"David Ball has his own twisted approach to surrealism, an art genre that is known for its obscure forms and alienish landscapes. That David Ball’s art works are bizarre within his genre is testament to just how “out there” his work is". Ball’s surrealist paintings bridge the gap between traditional surrealism and pop surrealism while standing in a class of its own." "His art style hovers on the fringe of surrealist art, marking the border between imagination and hallucination."
