Walton Ford - Large Scale Watercolors Flora & Fauna
Pamela Talese

Audubon-bon

Walton Fords lush watercolor paintings and prints in the style of Audubon's naturalist illustrations are larger than life both physically and in terms of scope. Each of his paintings is a meticulous study in flora and fauna, while being filled with symbols, clues and jokes referencing a multitude of texts from colonial literature and folktales to travel guides.

Ford's paintings are complex narratives that critique the history of colonialism, industrialism, politics, natural science, and humanity's effect on the environment. His prints are meticulous and fastidious in execution (Ford works with my friend, master printer Peter Pettingill wingatestudio.com/) Ford spent hours drawing at New York Museum of Natural History as a young man. Ford also has a fabulous rock and roll attitude which you can see here
