Warning, May Contain Nudity / Jack Ford
Jack Ford (b. 1989, London, UK) studied at the Arts University Bournemouth before moving to Florence to study under internationally renowned painter and teacher Charles H Cecil. During this time, Jack continued with his artistic practice, working in both wet and dry mediums such as oil paint and charcoal. In a time dominated by screens and carefully manicured images, Jack Ford’s work feels like a welcome antidote. Drawing on the legacies of Old Masters, Jack fills his paintings with a sense of life, movement, levity
He returns throughout the year to Florence to teach, alongside his teaching at London Fine Art Studios and as a visiting tutor to Atelier Tremlett in Lewes. Painting from life, Jack is keen for the works to be influenced by the ever changing variation of nature, constantly editing designs and re-evaluating whilst painting.
Jack Ford’s first solo exhibition, features a showcase of paintings from his studio, as well as a selection made exclusively for the show. This show explores the narrative ability of paintings through a variety of subject matters from the formal to the satirical.
