Amelia Ford Artist Bio

Name: Amelia Ford – Gender: Female – Age:27

Location: New York, New York

Having grown up in foster care, Amelia gravitated towards art at an early age as a means of escape from her realities. Her painting style can be somewhat described as contemporary art, or abstract expressionism. There tends to be sexual references in her work as well as the balances of power and money. The duality of a person from professional to personal, public to private life is a dynamic seen often. Ford was raised Pentecostal Christian, but gravitated towards a more spiritual outlook on life once going to college. Her fascination with discovering the truths of religion and adoration of Byzantine style artwork can be seen in many pieces. The artist also exhibits deep interests in exhibiting black/ethnic characters and people of color in positions of power/prominence they are not normally portrayed. Ford has had a wide range of life experiences, ranging from incarceration to homelessness. The artist uses her artwork to exhibit her beliefs, feelings and life experiences, and allows inspirations to flow from where they may.

Amelia is an avant-garde artist in the aspect that she believes she herself is art. Through performances, video and public demonstrations, Amelia Ford wishes to engage the general public in art and topics she deems important.
