The paintings of Walton Ford (b. 1960) combine superb draftsmanship with layers of allegorical and lyrical symbolism. "It's as if John James Audubon had been visited by the spirit of Hieronymous Bosch" is how one critic has described the unsettling impact of Ford's powerful works, with their sometimes violent imagery and their trenchant political and social commentary on history, colonialism, and the precarious relationship between man and animal.
This striking volume is the first overview of Ford's dazzling paintings-and the only book currently in print on this increasingly popular artist. Printed to coincide with a Ford exhibition at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York, the book includes an essay by screenwriter Steven Katz and an interview with the artist by Dodie Kazanjian, who, in a recent article in Vogue, concluded: "A Walton Ford painting can be enjoyed on many levels, but it just so happens that the entry level is dazzling draftsmanship and sheer, knockout visual pleasure."
