Literature & references:

Bruce Adams, Ralph Balson - A Retrospective, exhibition catalogue, Heide Park and Art Gallery, 1989, see pl 54, p 87, for ‘Matter Painting' 1960, a larger (137 x 153cm) work employing stronger contrasts between light and dark tones.  The work was later praised when exhibited at the Bloomfield Gallery in Sydney by Elwyn Lynn: “He then turned to fusions of often darker, flooding, paint-conscious colour that drowned boundaries in Pollockian lines of pigment or in thunderous, undisciplined waves.” (Weekend Australian, 2-3 July 1988, p 12)
