Dan Ford examines the industry design aesthetics found in disparate pockets of visual culture such as knitting patterns, S&M magazines, sauna brochures and comic books. From this, motifs are taken and carefully reproduced and repeatedly layered to create painting, drawing and collaged works that expose the quality of their own medium against the artists sense of placement and appropriation.
Dan Ford lives and works in Devon. All killer no filler is Ford's first solo exhibition and Moot are pleased to be commissioning a new body of work from the artist.
Recent exhibitions include; 'The Art Car Boot Fair', Brick Lane, London; 'Rotate: Moot', The Contemporary Art Society, London; 'Zoo Art Fair: Moot (2008)', Royal Academy, London; 'Best in Show', John Jones, London; 'The Juddykes', John Jones, London; 'I can't believe it is not butter', Surface Gallery, Nottingham; 'The Brotherhood of Subterranea', Kunstbunker, Nuremberg, Germany.
