David B. Smith Gallery is proud to present Chimera, the third solo exhibition of new works by San Diego-based artist Laura Ball. Adeptly harnessing musings of the subconscious mind, Ball utilizes recognizable yet otherworldly imagery. Mythological creatures, swirling parrot wings, and fantastical flora join together and are pulled apart as their forms metamorphose, lending meaning to the title of the exhibition.

In her exceptionally detailed watercolors, Laura Ball’s skill and vision are immediately felt and understood by the viewer. Whether standing before two hulking tigers in the throes of savage battle, or following sage owls between our world and the underworld, the low groan of primordial jungles and the cries of life beginning and ending and beginning again ring in the distance of Ball’s channeled realities.
