Ford, Peter A (b.1937)

Peter has been engaged full time in artistic activities for more than thirty-five years, after twelve years as a teacher. Initially he made etchings – landscapes, still lifes and imaginative images. Peter used other techniques too – linocuts and woodcuts for example, all within the range of traditional printmaking, producing editions and sometimes monoprints He was successful with much of this early work through participation in national and international exhibitions and through the promotion of his editioned work by dealers. In 1994 Peter received a prize which gave him a four-week residency at Lowick House Printmaking Workshop in Cumbria. Peter usually has several projects in hand at any one time. Since his first residency in China (October 2009) Peter has re-focused on etching. A series of colour variants with the general title of ‘Erosion’ is still developing. In addition he has taken a new interest in watercolour on Asian paper. His work can be seen regularly in group shows at Bankside Gallery, London, the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol and Off-Centre Gallery, Bristol which he started with his partner, Christine, in 1987.
