IN THE GALLERY: The Golden Mile

Juan Ford

1 - 30 Apr 2004

Juan Ford’s Golden Mile at dianne tanzer gallery is best described as his most technically prodigious and thematically ambitious work to date. The 4.5 metre painting draws from the aesthetics of industrial landscape, and contradictory painterly processes of evocation and cold examination. Suggested are themes of solitude, displacement, and an uncertain sense of place past, present and future. The work is presented in three panels. The following page shows a detail of the middle panel.
