This is an intriguing and powerful painting Ford created in 2011. This period of intense focus on the sea helped him push the boundaries of what he might have thought possible with the subject matter.
"Lunar Reactions" is one of the most memorable paintings from this show, with it's roiling arc of layered color and intensity. There is so much to absorb (stop by to see this in person). The incandescent moon is flirts with photorealism while the dreamy, fluid troughs and vibrant, frothy sprays are Ford Smith expressionist details that only he could conjure.
