"White Monkey" (2018) acrylic, collage and transfers on wood, 24x24 inches. Inspired by Elvis's man cave / TV den. I created this piece as a milestone to a memory of visiting Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee. A special place. On my 3rd or 4th visit, I had an epiphany, and became a bigger Elvis fan that day. Graceland and Elvis's legacy to this day serves as a shining symbol of the American Dream. --------------------------------------------- A FEW NOTES ABOUT MY ART: What you see is what you get. I take great care to get clear and color-correct photographs of my work, but it always looks better in person. Please see additional images for detail shots, art in context, etc. Dimensions reflect the size of the art itself. All of my smaller paintings on wood include a frame (custom or artist-made) and ready to hang, unless requested otherwise. Some works on canvas include a frame, but most of them do not require it - usually I will continue the painting around the edges. If you have questions or concerns about framing, please ask me for more options. I’m more than happy to accommodate. All of my work is made with archival quality techniques and materials, and each gets a nice coat of varnish when they’re finished (usually matte). My smaller paintings are on 1/2” birch or oak hardwood boards, and gallery-wrapped canvases for larger work. Everything is made for permanence, so you can expect it to last forever. I do not provide artist statements for work, because I feel the work and its title is enough to start the conversation with viewers. In my work, the viewer plays a role in finishing the art, giving it life, visibility and intellectual value. However, many of my pieces do have a story, a symbolism or reference. If you’re interesting in learning more about a particular work, please contact me directly or include a note in your offer. Thank you for your interest!

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.
