John W. Ford creates monoprints that reference, both visually and metaphorically, archeological sites. Imagery, as well as content, is revealed through layer after layer of printing with traditionally etched and photo-polymer plates. The results are compositions representing what Ford describes as “the syntax of residue.”
John Ford is a printmaker and site-based sculptor living in Hamilton, Ontario. He has exhibited and lectured throughout the US and Europe. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at McMaster University.
