About Trinidad Ball

  • Biography

    I started painting in 1997 and in 2003 I resigned my post as Probation Officer to dedicate myself full-time to art. People and natural objects inspire me and I am excited by bright, strong colours and how they interact. I particularly enjoy the drama created by darkness and light and strong shadows. I am inspired by artists such as Velazquez, Goya, Caravaggio and Rembrandt and of the more contemporary artists I am fascinated by Hopper's work. Van Gogh’s colours move me.

     I describe my style as Contemporary Realism. For me each painting is a challenge and an adventure and an opportunity to develop as an artist. I initially observe the object until I have discovered and understood its uniqueness and character. I then work with the composition, light and background until I have created an image which compels me to paint. Through the use of many thin layers of strong pigment oil paint I render my image on canvas, thus creating translucent and luminous paintings which give the viewer the illusion of high realism.
