Microscopic Giant: The Parallel Universe of David Ball

"Looking at David Ball 's mixed-media paintings is analogous to staring at alien creatures that function as your reflection. They exist in a parallel universe where life is represented through Rorschach test-like brush strokes and layers of magazine clippings. When viewing Ball’s work in person, it’s easy to imagine these creatures having paper bag hearts that feverishly contract and inflate when they feel they are being watched. Trapped in a contextual narrative, they are frozen in motion".
