Mandy Lyn Ford is a Los Angeles artist, a New Jersey native, and a New Mexico transplant. Her work draws aesthetic influence from all three. She moved to New Mexico as a teenager to later attend New Mexico State University and the University of New Mexico, and in Los Angeles she studies at UCLA. Her studio is currently in the heart of LA in MidCity.

            Mandy’s work deals with binaries, a balance between tight and flow, clean and ratty, good and bad, and black and white. Her work is often reminiscent of electronics, punk and ska posters, stain glass windows, and church architecture. These visual influences are evidence of her childhood: growing up in a home that was heavily immersed in computers and gadgets, and growing up in a congregation that met in a historic landmark church.  Ska was surfacing in a strong way in New Jersey when she was a teen along with its visual influences, and when she moved to New Mexico she found a strong culture of black and white Xerox show flyers still evident, plastered to telephone poles and light posts, informing those who dare where the bands were playing.

            Her work is a constant evolution of itself; each painting includes themes and techniques from the previous while adding new bits to the conversation. Mandy’s work, on hand built wood panels, piled with canvas and paint, straddles the line between painting and sculpting.
