City Of Gold - Cash for Scrap

7 March 2019

"Toni-Ann Ballenden's practice as an artist is a committed process of construction, deconstruction and reconstruction.

With raw canvas as her core material Ballenden begins by mark making on to the surface, when the composition doesn't immediately resonate Ballenden has the capacity to do what few artists do, she cuts, rips and fragments, trusting that through an extensive and repetitive process of reassembly the final art work will emerge.

The results are powerful, unafraid, committed and authentic visual accounts of this process. Simultaneous order and chaos sit energetically on the surface, the work invokes the city, its mapped geometric organization in juxtaposition to the flow of messy humans who move through it and give it meaning."
