Yes - 2008
Acrylic on Canvas
72" x 96"
The florid magic realism of Yes, depicts an Islamic prayer rug within a lush Muslim paradise. After visiting Islamic societies in a search for an understanding of legislated abstraction, Ford’s thoughts went to the beautiful exchange of art and nature. Hoping an understanding ensues from the conformational utterance, Yes.

Tom Cruise - 2008
Acrylic on canvas
72" x 96"
Mohammad gazes longingly at the night sky against a backdrop of fantastical images referencing Scientology and Christian, Hindu, Islamic, and Native American religions. Prayer pillows float around the encased meteorite holy shrine, Mecca. The words “maybe” and “other” illustrate a hopeful moment or alternative where in quantum physics all other possible realities exist in simultaneous parallel planes.

Acrylic and Wood on Canvas
70" x 50"
“Ford’s self-taught style is squarely postmodern and draws from artistic innovations of painters from the late 1980’s and 1990’s (think touches of early Ross Bleckner, Julian Schnabel, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Sigmar Polke, and David Salle.) His subjects lean even more heavily toward a cynical new century, however, as he consistently and unapologetically addresses issues….” Marcus Cain, Review
