Work by Allen Ball


My work is deeply rooted in my childhood experiences playing near phosphate mines and on land owned by the timber and pulp industries in Florida. I make installations, video, and textured paintings that consist of dirt ash and burned refuse. I am fascinated with the vestiges of man's past and present exploitation of the environment as well as geography and ecology in relation to time.
