Artist Statement: "I can realise that the energy, the atoms that reach us from the sun is the source, the rhythm of existence, and the very narrow band, the spectrum, is all we can ever hope to have to try and reach a small amount of the rhythm and relativity of the universe with the substance of paint." - Ralph Balson

CHG Director's Statement: Ralph Balson was a highly regarded modernist painter credited with holding the first solo exhibition of abstract work in Australia.

Until the end of his life, Ralph Balson remained a highly ambitious artist who explored and pushed the boundaries. He was not satisfied in working exclusively towards producing a commercially popular style of painting. Instead he restlessly strove to interpret the experience of modernity.
