"Chap At The Pub" (2019) acrylic, fabric, decollage, rope and paintbrush on canvas, 36x48 inches. This is the first painting for my "Extras" series, a collection of abstract portraits (collage paintings) glorifying anonymous characters and everyday people. We take for granted so many folks who touch our lives in a small way, often we don't even remember their names. So I'm honoring them in a special way. Each painting in the "Extras" series has a different subject, title, palette and mood. I think this is a fun conversation piece, with culture and relevance...hopefully you can sense the humor in it, too. Even remotely figurative imagery is a rare thing in my work, but I like to flirt. You can see a seed for this series in my "Aging Man With Guitar" piece. In a way, this series pushes my collage painting into a different direction, taking me back to drawing and my roots as an artist. These portraits take cues from old master paintings, with a modern lens of composition reminiscent of cubism. Portrait painting has a rich history which has been revived in modern and contemporary painting. I know that I'm not alone in exploring this avenue. You could say these pictures are akin to works by Picasso, George Condo or Wayne White to some extent. This piece can ship safely in a box - please ask for lower price without crating, if interested.

Jim Ford is a multidisciplinary artist and type designer based in Milwaukee. Ford creates a fusion of modern and contemporary abstraction in his “collage paintings” which are activated with his sense of humor, history, culture and spirituality. ------------------------------- Art is a vehicle that affords us adventure and wonder. Each piece is an opportunity to express concepts in a new way as we learn and evolve. In my work, I strive to master the art of storytelling in my own visual language. My art is largely collage-based, though I have a background in drawing and design. Juxtaposing passages of paint, collage and assemblage, I tend to blur the lines between mediums so that the elements are working in unison. My work challenges the viewer to form their own personal analysis, decoding clues while exploring personal emotional and symbolic associations. Fueled by music, inside jokes and observations about modern life, the work tends to take on a humorous attitude with quirky titles and unusual subjects. A progression connects my pieces, which graduate from one “seed” to another, working to create a rhythm, momentum and – ultimately, a distinct abstract language. My work is, at times, a rebellion or reaction to our time and place; and other times embracing the human experience. Each piece is vastly different from the last, and while I employ a number of styles and techniques – my work is perhaps best defined by its compositional style and quality of energy. I’m interested in evolving my work into sculptural forms and experimenting with installation and space. My art practice is about expansion, growth and discovery, more than repetition. Building upon the themes that define my work, I am always seeking new and different ways of remixing materials to propel my artistic vision.
