Celebrating People

Judith Effa Ford's avatar Judith Effa Ford

My work is a series celebrating people in all their individual complexity and their relationships. The intent is to create joy. The entry would include an arrangement of five canvases rather than a single piece. Each piece is developed intuitively, beginning with the either the finding or creating of the individual characters. They are created first on heavy paper, painted and drawn and then cut out. After that begins the development of the canvas, including painting, collage and drawing. The characters that are the subject of the piece are incorporated onto the canvas midway in the process. Each canvas is 16 by 20. The entry is a grouping of 5 canvases that would be arranged on a wall space of around 6 feet by 5 feet.
