New Artist Spotlight: Weldon Ball, Geoffrey Gersten, and Michele de la Menardiere

Every week, UGallery releases new art and welcomes new artists to the community. We love seeing what each new week will bring. Say “Hello” to Weldon Ball, Geoffrey Gersten, and Michele de la Menardiere. These are UGallery’s newest artists! Read on below to learn a little bit more about their work.

Weldon Ball. Huntingdon, Tennessee.

Forest Pond

Weldon Ball abstracts landscapes to create new, uncharted territories. By simplifying a panorama into its fundamental lines and colors, he creates new worlds to explore. With palette knife in hand, Weldon spreads thick layers of oil into dramatic and energetic compositions.

Geoffrey Gersten. Tempe, Arizona.

Mr. Lemonhead

Geoffrey Gersten is a painter who creates his palette of colors from his surroundings. Born and raised in the radiant desert of Arizona, Geoffrey infuses his surreal paintings with vibrant, saturated colors. While adhering to the techniques of the classical art masters, Geoffrey offers refreshing works that are the “genesis of creative power and original vision.”

Michele de la Menardiere. San Francisco, California.

Michele de la Menardiere creates her own language using texture, iridescent colors, and unique shapes. In her highly-stylized, visual language, Michele communicates the complexities of human emotion. For Michele, painting is a cathartic process that allows her to meditate on universal themes ranging from loneliness to harmony.
