Featured artist: Deborah (Springstead) Ford
Yuma Art Symposium: Feb. 21-23
Today's featured artist
Deborah (Springstead) Ford's work takes nature as her point of departure.
Ford received her BFA in photography and a master's in photography/art education and an MFA in interdisciplinary arts from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, ASU and Goddard College.
She describes her process in the following words: “I am not a scientist. I am a photographer in awe of the natural world, its processes and phenomena found within my sphere of experience. It is within this sphere of interaction with biology, physics, and beyond, dovetailing with other ways of knowing (in my case, photography), that we are able to make sense of the world in which we live.”
Ford's presentation for this year's symposium is titled “Cartography and the Cultual Terrain II.”
