Extremes of scale typify Peter Ford’s second exhibition under the title Chance and Choice. It includes two spectacular works: Street Language - Things Fall Apart and Head in the Clouds and All at Sea, combining print processes with the artist’s own handmade and recycled paper. In addition there will be recent improvised paintings in ink and watercolour and miniature etchings and bookplate designs, providing a contrast in scale and demonstrating the artist’s versatility. Examples of Peter Ford's etchings, artists’ books and paper works are represented in nineteen public collections including Tate Britain and The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; BibliothèqueNationale, Paris, and the Pushkin Museum, Moscow. During the last six years he has won four major prizes in international print competitions and has played a prominent role in developing relationships with artist printmakers, particularly in China and South Korea.
Peter will be giving an exhibition tour on Saturday 22 September, 2.30pm, discussing selected works and his on-going practice. Free with exhibition entry, no booking required.
