TRAVIS BALLANTYNE

On Earth and Elsewhere
January 4 – January 24, 2019
Reception: Thursday, January 10, 2019 6-8 PM

Travis Ballantyne is an abstract painter who emphasizes contrasting color relationships. In his work, he balances cool and warm and light and dark colors. He usually applies paint directly onto the canvas from the tube and proceeds to manipulate the color with a variety of tools: brushes, plants, cards and other non-traditional items serve his purpose. Vibrant, colorful abstractions such as Circles and Boats in Water result from this unorthodox process. Once finished, he often rotates paintings 90 or 180 degrees in order to offer the viewer a different experience of the piece. 

Ballantyne is a worldly artist. He grew up in a military family that relocated to a new country every two years. He has spent time in the United States, Europe, and Asia, learning a great deal about cultures and customs around the world. This multicultural background informs his aesthetic and artistic practice. After graduating from High School in South Korea, Ballantyne relocated to Texas to study art. While there, he also discovered his passion for teaching art to children and adults.
