Published by Lucid Art Foundation.
Edited with introduction by Fariba Bogzaran. Text by Dawn Ades, Tere Arcq, Fariba Bogzaran, Ilene Susan Fort, Terri Geis, Sepp Hiekisch-Picard, Andreas Neufert.

This substantial volume is the first major resource on the life and work of Gordon Onslow Ford (1912Ė2003), the British-born painter who was the youngest member of Andrť Bretonís surrealist group in Paris, and who spent more than 50 years in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Marked by an initial interest in automatist techniques, Onslow Fordís painting gradually developed through studies of Eastern philosophy, mysticism and ecology resulting in complex and varied works that incorporated cosmic charts and biomorphic abstraction.

In this superb publication, a series of thoroughly researched essays, previously unpublished archival material and over 200 color illustrations trace Onslow Fordís time spent in Paris, stints in New York and Mexico, culminating in his move in 1947 to the Bay Area. Organized and published by the Lucid Art Foundation (cofounded by Onslow Ford in 1998), this is a long-overdue and impressively executed survey.
