Reflex is proud to announce its fourth solo show with Roger Ballen ‘ Ballenesque in Color’, which includes a series of Polaroids and a selection of Unseen photographs in color. The photographs exquisitely demonstrate his signature absurd compositions, all meticulously orchestrated to uncanny perfection. The works truly escape any other definition than “Ballenesque.”
Ballen is notorious for his black and white photographs of intriguing setups, described as psychologically haunting and visually puzzling. Following the artist’s first Polaroid exhibition at the gallery, he has delved into color photography. This new exciting body of work will premier at Reflex gallery. Alongside the larger photographs, the polaroids add another layer to the intrigue. Shot with Fujifilm’s Instax series, the medium of the polaroids intensifies the experience of Ballen’s bespoke world-building.
“My work takes you to the other side of your mind”
