  • Walton Ford. Pancha Tantra, Updated Edition

    ABOUT:

    At first glance, Walton Ford’s large-scale, highly detailed watercolours of animals recall the prints of 19th-century illustrators John James Audubon and Edward Lear. A closer look reveals a complex and disturbingly anthropomorphic universe, full of symbols, sly jokes, and allusions to the ‘operatic’ quality of traditional natural history.

    In this stunning but sinister visual universe, beasts and birds are not mere aesthetic objects but dynamic actors in allegorical struggles: a wild turkey crushes a small parrot in its claw; a troupe of monkeys wreaks havoc on a formal dinner table; an American buffalo is surrounded by bloodied white wolves. In dazzling watercolour, the images impress as much for their impeccable realism as they do for their complex narratives.

    “Ford’s work in all its gory‚ hyper-real glory.” - Los Angeles Times
