Ocula ReportYinchuan Biennale: 'Starting from the Desert. Ecologies on the Edge'19 Jul 2018 : Tessa Moldan for Ocula{{document.location.href}}

Between sand and water, it is the desert that Marco Scotini, curator of the 2nd Yinchuan...

Juan Ford concentrates on ways to intimate, present and represent notions of an Australian sense of place. Recognising that this is in no way a new thing to do, he has re-thought this, using eucalyptus shadows on figures, and remade figures from bound flora to recreate this experience.

Ford has been the recipient of many prestigious awards and prizes including the 2010 Basil Sellers Peoples Choice Award, an Australia Council New Work Grant, 2010, 2006 Fisher's Ghost Art Award, the 2004 Fletcher Jones Art Prize, the 2003 Conrad Jupiter's Art Prize, the 2004 Salon des Rufuses, an Australia Council Studio Residency in Rome in 2006, and the 2001 Whyalla Art Prize. He has been a finalist in numerous major awards also, such as the 2010 Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, The Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize, Bendigo Art Gallery and the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize at the State Library of New South Wales, both 2009.

In 2010, Juan Ford was the feature artist at Dianne Tanzer Gallery + Projects; Melbourne Art Fair stand, (which was voted the Art Collector magazine's Visitors Choice); and in 2013 at their stand at Art Basel in Hong Kong.
