Kevin Ford is interested in intense looking. Using a combination of delicate brushwork and loose airbrushing, he blends the languages of Spanish still lifes, cartoons, and color field 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, Hesse Flatow, New York, NY, Semiose Galerie, Paris, FR, Kate Werble Gallery, New York, NY, and Tops Gallery, Memphis, TN. 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. He has attended residencies at Millay Arts, Austerlitz, NY, Chateau d'Orquevaux, Champagne-Ardenne, France, and the Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT. 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.
