FROM KOLAJ 26
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
“Each piece is vastly different from the last, and while I employ a number of styles and techniques—my work is perhaps best defined by its compositional style and quality of energy.” writes Jim Ford whose work is on the cover of Kolaj 26 and a portfolio appears in the issue. “Clean lines, arbitrary shapes, bold colour choices, and abstract compositions make Ford’s collages a delight.”
