I’ve got a post up over at Mid West Capacity on a recent painting show at the University of Richmond Museum

and there’s been some coverage in the local paper of my new show at Perlow-Stevens Gallery. Cool.

In celebration of the show here’s a shot of one of the woodblocks used to make the Quintessence Series…

Ballou and Spear at Perlow-Stevens Gallery

David Spear and I will be having a joint exhibition entitled “Concerning Composing” from September 1 through September 28th at Perlow-Stevens Gallery here in Columbia, MO. I hope to see a ton of people there. You can search this blog for more examples from the works I am submitting. Here’s one of them.

We’ve put out a catalog for the show. You can take a look here. It features statements by both of us and a selection of the work. Check it out.

Lamentations 3

lamentations 3 verse 5

i’m going to be starting a series of prints devoted to the biblical book of lamentations, chapter 3, verses 1 through 20. i’ve wanted to make a specifically biblical body of work over the last few years. i wanted an unconventional text and this is it. check it out here.

the final project will be entirely prints, with a portion of the edition bound together as artist books.

UPDATE: I know this post gets quite a few hits and that means that people are seeking information about the Diebenkorn show. As far as I know that show has been pushed back indefinitely. You can see more info about the postponement here.
