“Drops of Nature” debuted in 2004 at the Art Expo in New York City and it’s stunning beauty and originality created a seismic stir throughout this international show at the Jacob Javits Center.
The first painting from Ford’s Splash series, where he employed a technique that was part pointillism and part Pollock, discovered after he had spent months painting thousands of labor-intensive mosaics in his popular style. To put it simply, he was tired of painting “tight”. So he painted loose, the brush barely touching the canvas—almost as a rebellion—and an art sensation was born.
This groundbreaking painting views as fresh and exciting as it did during its debut.
