Laura Ford: Fantasy, Menace and Tenderness: Facets of a very Modern Sculptor


Laura Ford, born in Cardiff, studied at Bath Academy of Art, 1978-1982, which included a sojourn at the Cooper Union School of Art, New York , followed by Chelsea School of Art for a year .Among a host of very eminent tutors were Anthony Gormley and Peter Randall-Page. At Chelsea  she became a lecturer from 1983-1995 after which she was Senior Lecturer in Art at Middlesex University. Now she lives in Camden with her husband and children.

She is identified with the New British Sculpture Movement. Her work is found in a multitude of prestigious collections including the Tate, the V and A, MOMA and the National Museum of Wales, to name but a few.

Laura Ford’s sculptures are faithful representations of fantasy both menacing and tender. Meticulous observation together with humour engage with a wide perspective on social and political issues. Her work is both intensely crafted and playful and she employs a wide range of media.
