"My work is about our relationship with the rest of nature, explored through notions of change, the passing of time, and the transience of everything around us. For me, creating seemingly solid structures or forms from thousands of individually suspended elements has a direct relation with my experience of these forces. There is a sense of fragility and a lack of solidity that carries through all the sculptures. I feel as if they are somewhere between movement and stillness, and thus in possession of a certain energy." Claire Morgan
The amazing watercolour paintings of Walton Ford are an instant hit when anyone comes across one. The quality of his work reminds of the best illustrators like John James Audubon and the very modern and often ironic touch he adds to his subjects are clever and funny.
And after going through his book Pancha Tantra and seeing the vast collection of his paintings it is even more difficult to find any criticism towards his whole work.
