"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 (b.1981) is an interdisciplinary artist and type designer with studios based in Milwaukee. Ford works primarily as a painter and sculptor, using acrylic mixed media, collage ephemera, printed fabrics and household materials for his signature collage paintings. His works are loosely animated, intuitive yet sophisticated; sometimes appearing mechanized in their moiré of color, texture and pattern. Symbolically abstract and subliminally coded, Ford’s themes tend to quips, commentary, inside jokes, and also theory, teachings and musings - reflecting the artist’s beliefs, passions and personal studies. Although many of his artworks are individual and unrelated, Ford works in various series to explore a particular theme or method, thinking laterally. More recently, his work has extended to synthetic mixed media sculptures employing organic patterns and elements of sacred geometry, which he refers to as ‘thought forms’ and ‘transdimensional recordings.’ Aside from his art practice, Jim Ford is an award-winning typeface designer with several original designs including Posterama, Masqualero and Hideout. In his tenure at Monotype and Ascender, he created bespoke typefaces for international brands, publications, devices and video games. Ford is perhaps best known for his keen drawing abilities and storied typefaces.
