Lisa Ballard uses landscape to explore her obsession with colour and light, in particular, the juxtaposition of colours and how they affect each other. She is drawn to the temporal in the landscape, leaning towards abstraction, but holding on to the figurative elements, she tries to capture in her paintings how it is to be in that moment and place. Focusing on the creative artistic process, Ballard uses painterly brush marks that encourage an organic response to every colour and layer she applies. She also incorporates washes, flat spray paint and scratches to allow the painting to evolve.
