Pancha tantra by Walton Ford( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in German and English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book features a natural selection: Ford's beautifully savage beasts and birds. Walton Ford's watercolors of animals could be mistaken for 19th century natural science illustrations or British colonial paintings. Except they're not. Something strange and usually sinister is happening in each of Ford's works, whether it's a wild turkey crushing a small parrot with its claw, a collection of monkeys wreaking havoc on a formally set dinner table, or an American buffalo surrounded by a pack of bloodied white wolves ... in the middle of a proper French garden. Painted with the deft technique of a technical artist, Ford's works vibrate with an intensity of uncanny familiarity; they are both reassuring in style and disturbing in content. With titles like Au Revoir Zaire, Necropolis, and Dirty Dick Burton's Aide de Camp, and Space Monkey, his paintings open the doors to a world of real-life fantasy, dreams, and nightmares - all with a stunning candor that almost belies the artist's intentions. Collected together for the first time as a limited-edition book, and now available as a popular edition, Ford's bestiary takes its name from one of the texts he frequently refers back to in his work: The Pancha Tantra, the ancient Indian book of animal fables collected from 3rd-5th Centuries B.C. and considered to be the precursor to Aesop's Fables. This book provides an in-depth exploration of Walton Ford's oeuvre. It also includes a complete professional biography as well as substantial excerpts from the textual sources for the paintings, from Vietnamese folktales and the letters of Benjamin Franklin to the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini and John James Audubon's Ornithological Biography."

Walton Ford : pancha tantra by Walton Ford( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beauty and the beasts: Walton Ford's sinister wildlife scenes. At first glance, Walton Ford s large-scale, highly-detailed watercolors 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 nature of traditional natural history.In this stunning but sinister visual universe, beasts and birds are not mere aesthetic objects but rather dynamic actors in allegorical struggles a wild turkey crushes a small parrot in its claw; a troupe of monkeys wreak havoc on a formal dinner table; an American buffalo is surrounded by bloodied white wolves. In dazzling watercolor, the images come to impress as much for their impeccable naturalism as they do for their complex narratives.This updated edition of Pancha Tantra features the artist's most recent works and contextualizes his collection of bestial tableaux with an in-depth exploration of his oeuvre, a complete biography, and excerpts from his textual inspirations: Vietnamese folktales and the letters of Benjamin Franklin, the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini, and Audubon's Ornithological Biography."--Publisher's description
Walton Ford : pancha tantra by Bill Buford( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walton Ford se inspira en libros -la autobiografía de Benvenuto Cellini, la correspondencia de Benjamin Franklin, cuentos populares, los tratados de Audubon- para crear sus obras, de gran formato y sumamente detalladas. Pero un examen más profundo revela un universo complejo y antropomorfo repleto de símbolos, chistes solapados y alusiones al aire "operístico" de los temas tradicionales en la historia natural. Las bestias y aves que pueblan las pinturas a tamaño real de Walton Ford no son nunca simples objetos, sino dinámicos actores en luchas alegóricas: un pavo salvaje estruja a un pequeño loro con su garra, un grupo de monos causa estragos en una elegante mesa de comedor o un bisonte es rodeado por una manada de lobos blancos ensangrentados. El título de Pancha Tantra procede de un antiguo libro indio de cuentos de animales, considerado el precursor de las Fábulas de Esopo

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This final episode explores the ways in which contemporary artists use irony, goofiness, satire and sarcasm. The four artists profiled in this program - Eleanor Antin, Raymond Pettibon, Elizabeth Murray and Walton Ford - have been influenced by the history of humour and comedy, including vaudeville, cartoons, and comic books. Working in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, performance, photography, and printmaking, their artworks reveal how humour and satire can stimulate laughter as well as serve as a vehicle to explore serious subjects, such as feminism, the natural environment, the excesses of consumer culture, social injustice and war

Forsaken by Walton Ford( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Writes Pearlstein: 'The premise of Forsaken is a hierarchy that undergoes a radical shift. One character holds the position of power, which the others, his 'entourage, ' appear to support. His position alludes to that of celebrity, politician, teacher, director or boss. The first three scenes depict this hierarchy, while revealing the tensions that lead to the cathartic undoing of this codependent power structure. This false idol falls as the group forsakes, humiliates and discards him. He is left literally picking up the pieces of his shredded image. Their abandonment serves as a respite rather than a renewal, as the status quo is reinstated and the cycle begins again' "--Publisher's website

Le monde animal ne semble avoir aucun secret pour l'artiste qu'est Walton Ford. Né à New York en 1960, il conjugue dans ses aquarelles la monumentalité des formes avec une précision de miniaturiste. Croisant références classiques et codes de la culture de masse, ses oeuvres s'apparentent aux plus belles planches zoologiques du XIXe siècle, détournées cependant avec malice et ironie de leur destination scientifique. 0Pour la première fois en France, une institution, le musée de la Chasse et de la Nature de Paris (15 septembre 2015 au 14 février 2016), lui offre ses cimaises : parmi la profusion de tableaux, d'armes et d'animaux naturalisés de ce lieu unique, les oeuvres de Walton Ford génèrent échos, ruptures et discordances, en un étrange carnaval des animaux qui s'affirme comme une installation artistique à part entière. A cette occasion il a créé spécifiquement pour le musée un ensemble inspiré de la bête du Gévaudan, entraînant le visiteur dans une quête ludique et inattendue. 0Ce livre propose les clés pour découvrir l'univers d'un artiste parfois licencieux à travers une sélection de ses oeuvres majeures, de ses aquarelles les plus emblématiques à ses oeuvres les plus récentes.0
