Infinex II is the latest installment in Sydney Ball's exploration of colour, form and structure. This series references the famous Modular work from the sixties which the Sydney Morning Herald art critic Bruce James has described, "... as a series of geometries so sumptuous and grand as to leave the spectator breathless.”

In this latest exhibition painted canvases are configured into dynamic architectural forms that actively play with the negative space of the wall. The geometric assemblages are an arresting combination of eye-popping colours and crisp, resilient shapes. These new works demonstrate Ball to be a committed and adventurous contemporary artist whose past work is augmented by the presence of the new. At the age of 79 and with over 60 solo exhibitions to his name Ball's considerable body of work secures him a place as not only one of the great patriarchs of Australian modernism but also as an inspiring senior contemporary artist.
