Walton Ford



Walton Ford (b. 1960) is an American artist renowned for his artworks that vividly portray historic wildlife, flora, and fauna reminiscent of naturalist illustrations heightened with elements of fantasy. 

Rich in allegory, Ford's works celebrate biodiversity while offering a critical examination of humanity's historical impact on the natural world. 

Ford's dynamic compositions are rendered with remarkable precision, bringing to life complex depictions of animals through vibrant colors and intricate details. The artist fills his images with subtle symbols and precise details, creating a tapestry of layered meaning throughout his work.

"Limed Blossoms" features a bouquet of hummingbirds feeding on nectar from trumpet-shaped flowers. Rendered in a tropical palette, the serene ecosystem occupies the foreground of the work, positioning the viewer as an observer of this intimate natural habitat.

Looking beyond the tranquil scene reveals a much more sinister reality. Industrial structures loom in the background, revealing gates, bridges, and plumes of chimney smoke that billow in the distance. Like the best of his work, Ford employs juxtaposition to illustrate the impact of industrialization on the natural world. 

Ford's work is celebrated in numerous public collections including the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Smithsonian American Art Museum (Washington, D.C.), and the Princeton University Art Museum (New Jersey).
