Kevin Ford is interested in intense looking. Using a combination of brushwork and airbrushing, he blends the languages of Spanish still lifes, symbolism, cartoons, and  abstraction to bring a sense of historic urgency to overlooked, everyday objects. Kevin received his BFA in Painting from Boston University and his MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale. His work has been included in solo exhibitions at 12.26 Gallery, Dallas, TX, Semiose Galerie, Paris, FR, Kate Werble Gallery, New York, NY, Tops Gallery, Memphis, TN, and at MARCH, New York, NY. Kevin's work has been exhibited in group exhibitions at The Center for Maine Contemporary Art, ME, Inman Gallery, TX, Reyes Finn, MI, Casey Kaplan, NY, The Islip Art Museum, NY, Tops Gallery, TN, and elsewhere. His work has been featured in V Magazine, included in the book Artists II, published by Steidl, and has been reviewed in Artforum, The New York Times, and other publications.
