Edition of 10
Laura Ford’s sculptures are representations of fantasy with sometimes bitter sweet and menacing qualities mixed with tenderness. Her work combines humour with a dark brooding quality, drawing in fantasy, playfulness and social and political issues. She works with a range of media, including drawing, painting, performance and set design. She has increasingly taken on the challenge of public art alongside museum and gallery shows. In 2005 she represented Wales in the Venice Biennale.
Her work is represented in many public collections including; Tate, The Victoria and Albert Museum, Government Art Collection, Potteries Museum, National Museums and Gallery of Wales; Museum of Modern Art, University of Iowa; Arts Council of Great Britain; Contemporary Art Society; Unilever plc; Penguin Books; Oldham Art Gallery, The New Art Gallery Walsall, The Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, The Meijier Gardens, Grand Rapids USA and The Gateway Foundation, St. Louis, as well as numerous private collections.
