Also known as ‘Nature Boy’, Ford is an artist that stands out from today’s tendencies in art. No extreme means, no hidden concepts, no shocking themes –well, at least not with a first glance. Take a note of this:
“Blending depictions of natural history with political commentary, Ford’s meticulous paintings satirize the history of colonialism and the continuing impact of slavery and other forms of political oppression on today’s social and environmental landscape. Each painting is as much a tutorial in flora and fauna as it is as a scathing indictment of the wrongs committed by nineteenth-century industrialists or, locating the work in the present, contemporary American consumer society.”
"Color is fun, color is just plain gorgeous, a gourmet meal for the eye, the window of the soul." - Rachel Wolf
