Biography

Otto Ford (b.1978) lives and works in London. His artworks are created from the re-processing of the digital matter into the material work of painting. His digital paintings are produced using found imagery as an initial base and digitally drawing a paintbrush from a particular point, or pixel, thus re-animating the physical gesture of painting. Since to ignore technology nowadays seems like a desperate denial, artists like Otto Ford transform the every-day digital reality in raw-material for his artistic process. By doing so he questions a great deal of the historical artistic praxis of painters, such as choice and application of color, layering and texturing of paint, and rendering of space. Located somewhere between a painting, a print, a digital image and screen, Ford creates works that strive to transcend what painting (and the painter) has and can become.
