FORD, Jane N. D.

1943 - ?

Born at Windsor, Berkshire in 1943 and as Jane Waring, she married at Chelsea, London in 1965, Gerard C. H. Ford and works as Jane Ford. Jane studied printing and graphic design is a painter, mosaic artist and a poet, and her interests are in abstract art and in the mixing of mediums there is a pellucid quality to her work. In the summer of 1966, she rented a barn in a field near to where her parents lived in Cornwall, and constructed a still life with a bedstead, a piano, and a fairground horse. In counterpoint to the reality being painstakingly distilled on the canvas, she cut away one side of the actual piano, and added touches of colour to some of the things she was painting. The resulting work brings to some junk in an English barn the formalised stillness and light of a Piero della Francesca and making of it her meaning. Jane exhibited from Rookery Farmhouse, Sudbury, Suffolk at 'Vision of Sudbury' show at St Peter's church, Sudbury in 2007 a mosaic 'Wanted-The Western By-pass', in 2009 a palette knife/oil on canvas 'Sudbury Meadows' and in 2013 a collage acrylic 'St Peter's in a Dream'. The ‘Stamp Collection’ is my latest collection. Small, intimate and colourful prints, built around national stamps.
