JAMES BALLA: Into The Blue Again
PAAM 2013 exhibition catalogue
The Provincetown sky and seashore: the influence of this environment is my fuel—the light that is so stunning. Actually stunning. The evaporation of color at times, the fading of the horizon or the explosive glare of the sea in the daylight. Throughout it all, really, is the light. It dematerializes the ocean, disperses shapes in the mist, distorts distance and dimension with its clarity. These things are always present, yet they are not what I am thinking about when I am working. My concentration is on the work.
