Artwork Description:
Size:31 x 39 in

Introducing 'Slow Down', an original masterpiece by the acclaimed Stephen Ford, that beckons the viewer to pause and reflect amidst life's rapid pace. Enveloped in a tastefully appointed wooden frame of soft grey with hints of silver, this painting measures an impressive 31 x 39 inches and is a testament to Ford’s unique interpretation of our coexistence with animals.

At the heart of this artwork lies a mesmerising depiction of a panda bear, rendered in a style that marries abstract geometric shapes with textured splashes reminiscent of street art. The contemplative expression etched on the panda's face invites introspection, while its upper body is adorned with vivid paint drips in shades of deep night purple, delicate pastel pink, and pure ivory against a backdrop washed in subtle tones ranging from dusky lavender to rich earthen hues.

'Slow Down' is not just visually striking but also emotionally stirring. Ford’s use of colour—a palette that weaves together charcoals and smoky lavenders with whispers of blush and splashes of electric blue—creates an atmosphere that envelops viewers, drawing them into a reflective narrative about our relationship with nature.

Stephen Ford’s artwork transcends mere observation; it engages deeply with themes concerning humanity’s impact on the animal kingdom. His technique combines spray paints across twenty shades and oil glazes applied meticulously over flat backgrounds devoid of context. This method highlights his subjects in thought-provoking isolation—encouraging personal discovery through confrontation with broader environmental issues.

Ford's dedication extends beyond his canvas; as an artist deeply committed to environmental conservation, he contributes part‐of his profits towards supporting related charities. Holding a Masters from Central St Martins College of Art since 2010 and sharing his talent across Southern England, Stephen defines his work as "emotive reveries," where comforting colours mask darker truths beneath—a blend capturing both elation and concern.

‘Slow Down’ offers more than just aesthetic appeal; it serves as an evocative invitation for contemplation on nature’s simplicity and complexity alike—an emblematic piece perfect for collectors who seek depth in artistry and message.
