These paintings and assemblages made between 2014-2016 reflect on the travels and studies of David Ford. For over thirty years, Ford has explored and exposed the cultural interface he has experienced from his home in Kansas City, Missouri to the sensibilities of Ethiopia, Haiti, and Cuba. With a history of Crossroads philosophy and a deep national bibliography, we look forward to presenting his first one man show of new paintings in three years.
