Walton Ford is a painter whose work examines the relationship between humans and animals in the wild. These creatures, he believes, “would rather be left alone.” As a child, Walton was always inspired by the natural world and would bring a sketchbook to museums and zoos. Now focused on exploring wilderness beyond reality, Ford offers his brief but spectacular take on the imagined animal.
