Laura Ford

Laura Ford was born in Cardiff in 1961. She studied at Bath Academy of Art, and Chelsea School of Art, London. Ford's creatures are faithful representations of fantasy and, at times, a nightmarish imagination. With their bitter-sweet, menacing and endearing qualities, her stuffed animals and dolls appeal to childhood memories and inhabit a world we immediately recognize as somewhat familiar. Recent exhibitions include A Stranger Here Myself, Camden Arts Centre, London (1998); Fun de Siècle, Walsall Museum (1998), and New Art from Britain, Kunstraum Innsbruck, Austria (1998). Laura Ford lives and works in London.
